The organization said its 2010 registration statistics found Labs were the most popular dogs, followed by German shepherds, Yorkshire terriers, beagles, golden retrievers, bulldogs, boxers, dachshunds, poodles and shih tzus.
The AKC said beagles and golden retrievers switched spots from the 2009 list, as did boxers and bulldogs.
The kennel club said three new breeds appeared on its registry in 2010 -- the 33rd-ranked Leonberger, the Cane Corso at spot 51 and the Icelandic sheepdog in 82nd.
