Labs rule in Baltimore, Yorkies are second
The Labrador retriever remains the most popular breed in Baltimore, but the Yorkshire terrier jumped three spots to become the city’s second most popular breed in 2009.
The top five breeds of Baltimore, according to American Kennel Club figures released today, are:
1. Labrador Retriever
2. Yorkshire Terrier
4. Golden Retriever
5. German Shepherd/Poodle/Rottweiler (tied)
“In 2009, the Top 5 also saw the rise of two hard-working breeds with jobs – the poodle and the Rottweiler – perhaps reflecting the nose to the grindstone nature of Baltimore,” AKC spokesperson Lisa Peterson noted.
