What Dog Breeds Are Favorite in Delaware and Other States?

It’s no secret that a dog is man’s best friend. You only have to consider that nearly two-thirds of US households include a dog.

Of course, we all think our own family dogs are the best, but what breeds are the favorites in Delaware and the rest of the country?

When National Dog Day rolled around in August, we reported on a Casinos.com study that ranked the three favorite dog breeds for each state. The study analyzed Google Trends data from the past 12 months to determine what the favorite dog breed was in each state out of the 48 most popular breeds, excluding crossbreeds.

Based on this study, chow chow, bichon frise and dalmatian were the most popular pet dogs. The top five most searched dog breeds in the country in the past 12 months were terriers, chow chows, poodles, Jack Russell terriers and rottweilers.

But while Australia wins the popularity contest, the German Shepherd is a favorite in more states (16) than any other breed.
