Dog lovers prepare to fight, if your dog breed isn’t in the top 10 – why not?

I mean, Stephen Fenech is going to lose his mind when he sees there’s no Dalmations!

The list is compiled by Pet Insurance Australia, and it’s a fair mix of pure-bred and mixed-bred dogs of all sizes too.

Nadia Crighton from Pet Insurance Australia says “The top two breeds are smaller well-known breeds, that are certainly crowd-pleasers and make wonderful family companions,”.

And there’s also a interesting mix of the top pure-breeds represented in a crossed breed form too. “This really illustrates the popularity of these particular breeds of dog.” said Crighton.

With all things changing due to the pandemic, it poses the question what will change in this list? “Since COVID-19 pet ownership is certainly on the rise with many deciding it’s the perfect time to get a family pet,” Crighton says. “It will be interesting to see if this affects the breeds mentioned in our Top 20 Dog Breeds – 2021.”
