The 25 Most Popular Dog Breeds In The United States


Rottweilers are another very large breed on this list, typically topping out at about 130 pounds. They were originally bred in Germany as livestock herders and for pulling carts of meat to the market. Today, Rottweilers are primarily used as guard dogs and search and rescue animals.

The Rottweiler was officially recognized as a breed by the American Kennel Club in 1931. Their popularity hit an all-time high in the mid-1990s when it became the #1 most registered breed in the U.S.
