The American Kennel Club's ranking of the most popular dogs shows Bulldogs now top the list in Los Angeles. L.A. is the only city where the Bulldog ranks number one. It bumps the Labrador Retriever to the number two spot for the first time. Golden Retrievers are third on the list, followed by German Shepherds, and Yorkshire Terriers.

In Long Beach, Labs are still on top. They're followed by German Shepherds, Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, and Yorkshire Terriers.

The Kennel Club says it's unusual for French bulldogs to rank in the top 5. They're number 24 on the nationwide list.
