20 Hottest Dog Breeds in America
Some breeds, like Labrador Retrievers, have been popular pets for years, but other breeds have moved steadily up the list over the past decade. For example, 10 years ago you might not have even heard of a Cane Corso, but these days you're likely to cross paths with at least one at your dog park or vet's office.
To determine which breeds are truly the hottest breeds, we searched Vetstreet's data and looked at how many places each breed climbed between 2002 and 2012. The results included a plethora of designer mixes and about 800 pounds of giant breeds, plus a few surprises. Did your favorite breed make the list?
