The 10 most searched breeds from Google’s 2017 data
By The Get Leashed Trends Team
Every year, the services we love like Spotify, Netflix, and Google, release spectacular data about our user behavior. Last year, we joked around the Get Leashed office that Australian Shepherds were trending, and poised to become the next French Bulldog, a breed commonly seen around our homebase of Toronto. As it turns out, we weren’t far off!
Google has released their annual Year in Search Data to celebrate the end of 2017. This year has been chock full of trillions of searches across news, politics, film, entertainment, sports, and the most important topic on the internet: pets.
With some up and coming favs, some lesser seen pups, and a canine classic, the year’s most searched dog breeds are certainly interesting.
Have a look at the ten most searched dog breeds of 2017:
10. Border Collie
These gorgeous, active herders are favorites for their athleticism and smarts. This dog, named Ego, was definitely our favorite Collies of the year.
9. Shiba Inu
2017 was a year full of change, but one thing which remains constant is the internet’s unwavering devotion to the doge, aka Shiba Inu. While Shibas aren’t the only Japanese breeds worth mentioning, they are the only ones to crack the top ten.
8. Australian Cattle Dog
The Australian Cattle Dog is native to Australia and was raised for, you guessed it, cattle herding. They became recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1980 and are known as curious, alert, and pleasant.
