With their smart and affectionate features, it’s no wonder Mirror’s favorite – the black lab – is so high in the rankings.
Black Labradors currently rank in the top five in the race to find the UK’s favorite dog breed – but with weeks still to go, they need your vote to stay in the race.
The competition for the top spot has been fierce with over 2,000 votes cast across the country so far.
The Mirror supports Black Labs as the most expensive breed in the country – currently in second place – but you can vote for the dog you love the most on our partner site Team Dogs.
Don’t worry if you’ve already participated – from today you will be able to register a second vote.
Every Friday morning the 10 least popular breeds are taken out of competition, so make sure you don’t miss your chance to keep your favorite in the race.
The eliminated on Friday were Basset Fauve De Bretagne, Welsh Springers, Havanais, Poochon, Irish Setter, Maltipom, St Bernard, Irish Wolfhound, Pekingese and Afghan Hounds.
Ten more are now in the “dog room” section of the standings and risk being relegated later this week.
Black Labs are energetic and loving, and overall the perfect family dog, reports Wales News.
Recent statistics have revealed that black dogs are much less likely to be adopted due to their color and are apparently difficult to photograph.
So we are here to show some love to the dark haired beauties. With their soft, silky ears, sparkling eyes and button-down muzzle, they deserve your votes.
Our readers had a lot to say in favor of Black Labs.
