New research has seen Staffordshire Bull Terriers take first place, just behind Black Labrador in first place.

There are around 8.5 million dog owners in the UK, and we all think our wonderful dog is the best.

However, new data has taken an unbiased stance and found out which breeds are actually the most popular in Britain, and the results may surprise you.

TeamDogs have teamed up with Pooch and Mutt to give us the ultimate roster, and number one is the Staffordshire Bull Terriers, also known as Staffy.

For people who own or have had a Staffy, it’s no surprise that they’ve taken the top spot, with their loving and sensitive natures.

A very good reason why Staffordshire Bull Terriers have also become number one is their affection for children, which stems from the Victorian era when they were known as “Nanny Dog”.

In fact, the breed is best known for being brave, smart, and great with children.

In second place were the Black Labradors, a breed beloved across the world and a great family dog.
