14. Labrador Retriever
The Labrador Retriever is another popular dog breed in almost every home across North America. They’re always eager to show their affection, are extremely intelligent, and are always happy doing activities with their family. They’re gentle dogs to have around children, and people initially bred them as hunting dogs, so they require some exercise. Their coats aren’t exactly short, but they do shed, so they require some maintenance. People use the Labrador as a seeing-eye dog and a therapy dog because they’re always eager to please their owners.
