French bulldogs are now the UK’s favourite dog breed
French bulldogs are officially the most popular dog breed in the UK, beating our old favourite, the Labrador. The Kennel Club reported that in the first quarter of 2018, there were 8,403 registered French bulldogs versus 7,409 Labradors. If this trend continues, French bulldogs could be the most registered dog breed in the UK of 2018. That’d be a big deal, as it’d be the first time Frenchies have taken this title, and the first time in 28 years that Labradors haven’t topped the list (the last time a different breed was on top was 1989, when Yorkshire terriers were all the rage). That outcome is seeming likely considering the surge in French bulldogs’ popularity in the last few years. Between 2016 and 2017, there was a 44% increase in the registration of French bulldogs. In the past decade, ownership of breeds such as French bulldogs and pugs has risen by 2,964%.
So if you think you’re being all edgy and cool by choosing a French bulldog, you’re really, really not. Everyone’s got one.
