Popular puppies.

I have loved dogs since I was a young child. My love of dogs was sparked by the loveable family dogs we had on the farm when I was growing up. Over the years we had a number of dogs of a few different dog breeds, all of which are dear to my heart and have played a big part in many a precious childhood memory. Even when we moved from the family farm I still had the joy of a dog in the home thanks my sister’s adorable dog who was considered a member of the family.

When I moved out of the family home I missed having a dog. Thankfully my home was not dog-free for long as my sister and mum bought me a cute little puppy for my birthday. Now many a year later that little puppy is all grown up and along with a younger dog is a big part of my own little family.

As I have been fortunate enough to have had a number of different dog breeds touch my life over the years including Bichon Frise, Labrador, Golden Retriever, Cocker Spaniel and Jack Russell Terrier, I always find it interesting what dog breeds are the most popular with other people.

Thanks to insurance pioneer Bought By Many I know what puppy breeds are most searched for online following their recent study which analysed a vast amount of internet search data to find the UK’s most popular puppies of 2014.

Bought By Many’s popular puppy study concluded that the Cockapoo is the new favourite puppy of UK internet users, whilst last year’s puppy breed champion the Cocker Spaniel has dropped 3 places and is now the 4th most popular puppy breed.

In comparison to last year’s study of puppy breed popularity Chihuahua, Pug and Shih Tzu puppies have seen a decrease in popularity. Whilst Husky, Boxer and Goldern Retriever puppies have gained popularity and risen in the rankings, with German Shephard puppies rising 6 places to 5th place.

Timeless favourites including the Labrador, Jack Russell Terrier, Beagles, French Bulldogs and Bulldog have remained steady, holding their positions in the rankings.

The only new breed to enter the top 15 popular puppies is Rottweiler puppies who pushed out Border Terrier puppies who previously held the 15th spot last year.
