German Shepherds have a good chance of being named the UK’s favorite dog breed, but will still need your vote to win.
Thousands of votes have been cast since the poll was launched by our sister site TeamDogs, in collaboration with Pooch & Mutt, with dog owners across the country defending their favorite breeds.
Manchester Evening News supports German Shepherds as the country’s most expensive breed – currently in ninth place – but you can vote for any dog ââyou like.
Don’t worry if you’ve already participated – from today you can register another vote.
Every Friday, the 10 least popular breeds in the âdog roomâ section of the leaderboard are relegated from the competition.
Those that were eliminated this morning were the Corgi, Toy Poodle, Cavachon, American Bulldog, Tibetan Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Poochon, Bichon Frize, Doberman Pinscher and Pomeranian.
Some of our readers have shared their love for the breed on our Facebook page. Emma Baker wrote: “All dogs are beautiful but must be a little biased because I own this little one. So German Shepherd.”
Another commentator, Layla Grocott, wrote: “German Shepherd of course.”
Earlier this week, three new breeds were added to the contest after readers were asked to lobby for those they felt should be included. These were the Bedlington Terrier, the Great Dane and the Samoyed.
You now only have eight days to support your favorite dog, as voting ends at 7 p.m. on Saturday August 14. To keep your favorites out of the niche and risk being knocked out of the competition, be sure to vote today.
