Most Popular Breed: Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog breed in the US, in Canada, in Europe and they are the most numerous dogs in the world.

Most Agressive: The Dachshund and Chihuahua is quite dangerous despite their size. They might not kill you, but they will bite - more often than other breeds. Actually, pitbull type breeds aren't as agressive as the media would like us to believe. Some particular pitbull dogs may be agressive, but that's because of bad breeding practises and/or because their owners didn't take the necessary precautions. The American Pitbull Terrier and the Bull terrier often make great family pets, although they can be very agressive towards other dogs. However, all dogs should be regarded as potentially dangerous. A tiny Pomeranian once attacked and killed a human child, and no breed or dog should be regarded 100% safe with children.

I recently adopted a Labrador Husky and have since met several others who have them. My own dog is wonderful, despite having been a stray in remote costal Labrador.

Jack-a-ranian your best friend

I had a beautiful little one year old jack-a-ranian that unfortunately died from a puff adder snake bite despite anti-venom and a 24 hour stay and the vet on drip. I was so devastated, its amazing how a pet you loved so much that was so small could leave such a large space.

The best dog

My name is Antoinette and our family is the proud owner of a male Pitweiler named Kaiser, which means "King" in German. We love this dog so much.
