NEW YORK (AP) - The Big Apple is big on bulldogs.

The American Kennel Club announced Friday that the bulldog was the most popular dog breed in New York City last year. And the French bulldog was second.

Labrador retrievers, German shepherds and golden retrievers round out the top five.

In 2012, the Lab was number one.

New Yorkers’ tastes in dogs differ a bit from the rest of the nation.

Nationally, the AKC says Labs remained the top dog in 2013, for a record 23rd year. That’s the longest any breed has spent in the top spot since the organization’s founding in 1884.

The bulldog is the fifth most popular in the national rankings. The French bulldog is 11th.

The rankings reflect newly registered dogs, mostly puppies.
