Among the Changes in Chicago’s Rankings:

  • The Windy City loves the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. While ranked 23rd nationally, the breed is Chicago’s 11th most beloved pooch.
  • The Shih Tzu entered the top ten, coming in 9th place and joining the Yorkshire Terrier as Chicago’s top toy breeds.
  • The Poodle and Beagle, both in the top ten nationally, tied for 15th place in Chicago.

"In a city of sports fans, it’s no wonder that the Golden Retriever, a popular sporting breed, rose two spots to number three," said AKC Spokesperson Lisa Peterson, "bumping the Bulldog."
