Every dog is the greatest in their owner's eyes, but it seems those of us living in NSW have a favourite breed -- The Labrador Retriever.
According to an analysis of dog registrations on the NSW Companion Animals Register for 2016-17, there are 114,088 registered Labradors living in the state.
The golden, black or chocolate brown fur balls are renowned for their loveable temperaments and are one of the easiest dogs to train, making them a great addition to the family.
Coming in second place is the Staffordshire Bull Terrier with 112,292 listed on the Register. The Jack Russell Terrier came in third with 90,610 registrations.
The online register was launched in 2016 and provides pet owners and breeders with opportunity to store and update contact details, as well as pay lifetime dog registration fees. Registering your pet online also increases the chances for you to be reunited with your furry friend if they go missing.
The analysis of the register also revealed the most dog obsessed LGAs in the state. The Central Coast was the clear winner, with 117,458 dogs recorded in the area.
