Labrador retriever named most popular dog breed

The American Kennel Club has declared the Labrador retriever as America's most popular dog breed.

This is the 25th year in a row Labradors were named top dog.

The AKC uses statistics gleaned from registration records to determine which breeds are most beloved by dog owners.

Breeders say labs are popular because they are intelligent, and family-friendly.

Also among the top five: German shepherd dogs, golden retrievers, bulldogs, and beagles.
