The Labrador Retriever is San Francisco's top dog, according to a new ranking of the city's most popular pups in 2014 by the American Kennel Club.
The above map shows the diversity of San Francisco's favorite dogs across six neighborhoods based on information from the AKC, but it turns out Labs dominated the city in 2014 just like they did nationally, fetching first place on AKC's overall ranking as well. In San Francisco, Labs were followed by the French Bulldog, which was NYC's runaway favorite, and the Golden Retriever took third place. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi shook up the rankings by climbing into the Top 5 at the No. 4 spot, just ahead of the Poodle, according to AKC.
As seen in the map, folks in Nob Hill favored the Bullmastiff, while SoMa and Potrero Hill went for Frenchies, and the Castro is just bustling with Golden Retrievers. Pacific Heights and "NoPa" (or for actual locals, Western Addition) followed the city's overall trend favoring Labs.
