When it comes to the most abandoned dog breeds, the list is sadly topped by the Labrador Retriever. This beloved breed is the most popular in the United States, but unfortunately, it is also one of the most commonly found in shelters. Pit Bulls are also often abandoned due to their intimidating appearance and intense energy. Pugs and St Bernards are also frequently found in shelters.
Chihuahuas are another breed that is often abandoned due to their mischievous nature and small size. Boxers, with their seemingly low energy levels, are also often left in shelters due to their intimidating appearance. The American Kennel Club has published its list of the most popular dogs in New York, and these breeds are often found in shelters due to their popularity and some “flaws”. Purebreds such as American Pit Bull Terriers and Labrador Retrievers make up the majority of purebreds found in shelters.
German Shepherds are also a very popular pet in the United States, and their prolific breeding has caused excessive numbers of dogs to be thrown into shelters or found as strays wandering through neighborhoods.When it comes to rescuing a puppy, many people don't consider it an option. However, purebreds need a home just as much as any other shelter dog. It's important to do research on a
dog breedbefore making a decision, as this can help prevent poor decision-making that leads to dogs being abandoned. It's heartbreaking to think of all the dogs that end up in shelters due to irresponsible owners or poor decision-making.
