Congrats German Shepherd!
The big dog is the most popular dog in the states - both as purebreds and mixed-breeds.
The Chow Chow was a popular purebred in the 80s - but is now only commonly found at the grandparent or great-grandparent level among mixed-breeds, reported MSNBC.
In addition, breeds weighing more than 80lbs represent around one in ten of all mixed-breed dogs and nearly nine in ten mixed-breed dogs are neutered.
The cutest fact: half of owners (48 per cent) said their dog slept with them.
