NEW YORK CITY — Meet New York City's top dog.
The French bulldog, which experts describe as a gentle breed with an easy-to-care-for coat and minimal exercise needs, was the city’s most popular purebred dog in 2014, the annual American Kennel Club report found.
The cute pup dethroned his cousin the bulldog, who fell to No. 2, according to the study released Thursday morning that tracked dogs registered with the Kennel Club in the city.
“New York continues to be the city of the bulldog,” American Kennel Club Vice President Gina DiNardo said.
“Whether the adorable Frenchie or its sweet bulldog cousin, these mild-tempered companions make great pets for a variety of city dwellers.”
The Labrador retriever took third position in the city, just ahead of the German shepherd in fourth place and the golden retriever in fifth.
