The last year of imprisonment and the loneliness that accompanied it led many to accept a comrade’s adoption. The study, conducted by outdoor product expert Millets, lists the most popular dog breeds currently in the UK.
Using the analysis of the number of dog records with Kennel Club, The UK’s largest synological community, reported a 7.8% increase in adoptions in 2020 compared to the previous year. A total of 250,000 of our four-legged friends have found homes this year. Here is a list of the most popular species by the English.
The big winner on this list. Nearly 13% more Labradors were adopted in 2020 compared to the previous year. At the same time, there is nothing to wonder: who would not melt in front of a magnificent Labrador face? All the love in the world shines in those playful eyes.
We can say that it is “in fashion”, he was the most popular dog of all in 2019. Since the adoption rate is now stable, like his cousin Pure Bulldog, his little school has never stopped attracting many.
English Cocker Spaniel
His red coat only fits with his penetrating eyes. For good reason, he gave his name to the expression “to do cocker spaniel”! Surprisingly, this is the first time these gentle, affectionate dogs have seen their ugliness to the point of making a list.
Unlike its French cousin, the Pure Bulldog attracts more and more hearts. Their number has doubled in 10 years, and the trend does not seem to be declining: 11,000 adoptions were recorded last year, an increase of almost 17% compared to 2019.
Like the Bulldog, “sausage dogs” are now 5 times more numerous than they were 10 years ago. His funny looks and his sliding ears give him a touching ponhome that illustrates his success.
In British descent, Spaniards are experiencing a real decline in interest. There has been a 30% drop in adoptions over the past 10 years. In addition, the lack of interest in British native species has led some species, such as King Charles, to be considered endangered.
After the rise in popularity in 2016, when nearly 11,000 individuals were selected as companions, the dog is finally facing a gradual decline in value. Four years after its glory year, in 2020, only 6,000 pugs were accepted.
