The Labrador retriever continues its reign as America's top dog.

According to the American Kennel Club, the Lab took the top spot for the 21st consecutive year, which is based on registration statistics.

The beagle moved up to the No. 3 spot.

An AKC spokesperson said she wouldn't be surprised to see the beagle move to the top of the list next year.

The German shepherd maintains its No. 2 ranking. The golden retriever climbed from No. 5 to No. 4, and the rottweiler made its first appearance in the Top 10.

The Yorkshire terrier slid from No. 3 to No. 5 on the new list, and the dachshund dropped from No 8 to No. 9. The poodle breed rose from No. 9 to No. 8 in the AKC records this year. Other Top 10 finishers include the bulldog (No. 6) and the boxer (No. 7).

One thing the AKC is noticing is that small dogs aren't as popular anymore. It looks like big cuddly dogs are making a comeback.
