There’s a new top dog in the United States.

According to the American Kennel Club, the French bulldog has surpassed the Labrador retriever as America’s favorite dog breed.

It ends a 31-year reign at the top for the Labrador retriever, which hangs on to the #2 spot ahead of golden retrievers, German shepherds, and poodles.

More than 108,000 French bulldogs were registered last year, compared to 21,000 labs.

Some experts credit celebrities for the trend – some famous Frenchie owners include Lady Gaga, Leonardo DiCaprio, Reese Witherspoon, Snoop Dogg, Hugh Jackman and more.
