As a nation, the United States loves dogs.
During the global pandemic, the comfort of furry friends – including cuddling, walking around the block, and just playing games – has dragged many Americans who felt socially isolated through insecure times.
But there are still divisions among dog lovers, with some showing a clear weakness for certain breeds and a slight intolerance for others.
For example, those looking to have a training buddy might opt â€‹â€‹for a Labrador Retriever, while those who want a loyal pet might consider a Beagle.
But whether people want a wallet, herd dogs or just a companion, there really is a dog for everyone. So what breeds of dogs are the most popular in each state?

Well, according to a report by CBD pet brand Honest Paws that looked at Google data last year, the Havanese – an affectionate and affectionate breed – is a favorite in Idaho, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Nebraska.
On the other hand, those who lived in Wisconsin, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire loved golden retrievers.
But the number one breed of dog in most of the states was the bulldog.
This was the top in California, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Georgia (the University of Georgia wears a bulldog mascot), Iowa, Delaware, and Florida.
German Shepherds owned by President Joe Biden are preferred in West Virginia, North Carolina, and Kentucky. One of the most misunderstood dogs, the pit bull, found some recognition in Arkansas.
The corgi was also a preferred breed in North Dakota and Oregon. Queen Elizabeth II is said to have had over 30 corgis during her reign.
The Honest Paws team compiled the data by compiling a list of 40 dog breeds popular in seven groups – toys, terriers, sports, non-sports, herding, and working – and rated which group had the most searches in each state and the District of Columbia.
