French bulldogs were the No. 2 breed in 2021, and labs were booted down to that spot for 2022.
"Breaking the lab's top-dog status of over three decades is no small feat," the AKC said in its announcement. "The Frenchie is a smart, compact breed, and they can fit into various different lifestyles, perfect for people all across the country."
Golden retrievers, German shepherds, poodles, bulldogs, Rottweilers, beagles, dachshunds and German shorthaired pointers round out the Top 10.
