With only one day until the nation’s favorite dog breed is crowned, we can reveal which dogs are in the running for the top nomination.
The staff are comfortably seated at the top, as they have pretty much since day one – we Brits obviously adore the loving and loyal Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
But it’s not over yet. Your vote could see another race sneak in and take first place at the very last minute.
On the Staffie’s heels are black Labradors, boxers, greyhounds, and border collies. While the top five have seen a shift in order over the past few weeks, these popular breeds have never been too far from the top of the rankings.
So what makes these five breeds deserve to be named the UK’s favorite in the TeamDogs favorite breed survey?
We asked five owners why they stand up for their favorite breeds. That’s what they had to say.
Speaking of his love for the Staffies, Suzanne Sargent told TeamDogs: âWhere do I start to describe this wonderful little dog? They were known in Victorian times as the “Nanny Dog” because of their affection for children and their loyal nature.
âOur Staffie Lola is extremely loving and while sympathetic, remains indifferent to her canine counterparts – preferring human company every time.
âA game in the garden, a long walk or just a ‘hug’ on the couch, she will be happy to help – as long as she is with you. This love of human companionship has been clearly apparent in each of them. three Staffies we were lucky enough to own and others we have met.
Besides being absolutely adorable and incredibly affectionate, Black Labrador Shadow comforted her owner as she mourns the loss of her mother.
Abigail Rabbet said: âMy black lab puppy, Shadow is all about cuddles.
âEvery morning he pounces on me and licks my whole face – it’s like having a super cute super fan.
âHe’s also incredibly intuitive. I recently lost my mother and we brought Shadow to keep us company.
âDuring the grieving process he was the most amazing tonic.
“From making the walks to the grave less lonely to a comforting paw on the knee during times of tears – he has been an undeniable force for good during exceptionally difficult and painful times.”
As someone who has owned multiple boxers over the years, it’s no surprise to learn that Kelly-Lee Wilde is backing them to win.
She said: âOver the past 17 years, I have had the pleasure of owning four boxers and cheering on two more for Buddy’s Boxer Rescue.
âMy love of boxers started with Max, whom I met while volunteering for a canine rescue. He was curled up in my backseat on the way home with me a few hours after we met.
“I remember sitting down that night thinking about what I had done, I had just moved into a new house, all interior doors were closed and I had just taken delivery of a new sofa in leather.”
Then came Izzy, Buddy and Isla.
Kelly-Lee added, âBoxer dogs are truly an amazing breed, they are fun, smart, friendly, and dedicated to their family. Their only flaw is that they sincerely believe they were bred to be companion dogs! They are my heart race.

Describing them as “kind-hearted, calm and gentle”, Charlotte Vowles told TeamDogs: “Despite their sleek appearance and incredible speed, Greyhounds love nothing more than your couch, bed, or anywhere else they can lay their head, as they are also known as the ’45’ couch potato. mph â.
âAnd while a Greyhound ‘zoomie’ is a sight to behold, they were bred for speed, not endurance. Contrary to popular belief, they don’t really need to exercise a lot, so if you’re looking for a jogging buddy I’m afraid you can keep going.
“After a quick sprint, they like nothing more than dozing and lying around the house in a number of weird yoga positions known as the ‘cockroach’.”
She added: “I guarantee you that once you have had one of these unique personalities in your life, you will wonder how you ever lived without them.”
On why she thinks Border Collies should win the competition, Rachel Sutherland said: âKnown for its place on a farm, this breed also has a special place in my heart.
âBorder Collies are loyal, super smart and have lost a lot of energy. Five years later, my dog ââVinny is still taken for a lively puppy by other dog walkers!
âIf you lead an active lifestyle and enjoy a good hike, sheepdogs are definitely the type of dog for you. Vinny will gladly join me on 5km races and it is often me who struggles to follow him!
âHalf an hour later, when I’m in a pile on the couch, Vinny will be anxious to go on his next adventure.
