Good Girls & Boys: Mainers Pick Their Favorite Dog Breeds
Who Doesn't Love Dogs?
Ah yes, the dog. Man's best friend. Good ole Fido and Rover. Quite possibly the greatest living creation.
Let's face it, if you love dogs then you get where I'm going. They are simply wonderful creatures. Dogs have the ability to do so much for us. They are loyal, lovable, protective, youthful, and downright perfect. They can even help improve your own health. According to the American Kennel Club, dogs can help lower stress, improve heart health, give you a more active lifestyle, lower loneliness, and even lower the threat of allergies.
As you could probably tell, I have been a dog owner my entire life. Nothing but rescue dogs for life for this guy, but it doesn't mean I don't have affection for every breed out there.
I was reading the other day that the Labrador Retriever is actually the most popular breed in Maine. It's not surprising. These canines make a perfect breed of dog, especially for us Mainers. However, it made me start to wonder about other popular dog breeds here in Maine.
Thanks to WBLM's social media nation, I was able to put together a list of 30 different dog breeds that listeners chose as their favorite.
Some of these dog breeds are absolute number one draft picks, while others are a bit more surprising. One thing I do know is that there is no wrong answer. Every dog is equally awesome.
