City of Angels? Or City of Bulldogs? Although Frenchies and Bulldogs appeared on top five lists in other cities, according to Gina DiNardo, AKC vice president, L.A. was ahead of the trend as those two breeds have been popular in the city for years. The Golden Retriever also made it into a top slot this year, bumping the Yorkshire Terrier out of place (sorry, Paris Hilton!).
