The AKC has announced its annual list of the most popular dog breeds in the US. Of course in this case, its nothing more than an advertising gimmick to promote the sale of pure-bred dogs.
I beg to differ on which ‘breed’ is actually at the top of the list. The mutt is the all-time greatest and I contend that these dogs are the most popular. And of course, the most popular dog in 2013 should be the rescue dog – no matter what breed they are.
And after all – they’re all mixed-breeds. All dogs are wolf-hybrids. Some people are still paying thousands of dollars for some ‘champion’ dog of some royal-lineage, when they all can be traced back to wolves.
All so-called pure-bred dogs are the result mixed-breeding – in many cases going back thousands of years. So ultimately, they are all mutts – domesticated wolf mutts.
And finally and sadly, there are people promoting the slaughter of your dog’s relatives out in the wild, in a number of states.
