WARNING: cute overload.
The latest Kennel Club (KC) figures show that the French bulldog is set to overtake the labrador as Britain’s most popular dog.
Rarely seen in this country as little as a decade ago, but now hugely popular thanks to adoration from a growing number of celebrities, Frenchie registrations have increased by 47% from 14,607 in 2015 to 21,470 in 2016—up from 670 in 2007.
The KC predicts another 7,000 this year, which means that, by 2018, the trusty labrador could be knocked off the top spot—which it took from the Yorkshire terrier in 1990—for the first time in 27 years.
