UK's Favourite Dog Breed

It's been officially revealed what breed is the British favourite!

Cat lovers look away now - we're all about pooches today!

We're a nation of dog lovers, even the Queen herself gets followed around Buckingham Palace by lots of Corgi's, but what is officially the UK's favourite breed of dog?

ITV's recent programme Britain's Favourite Dog's took us through a two-and-a-half hour journey through the nation's favourite 100 breeds before revealing to us those that claimed the top spots.

Even Prince Harry was involved as he appeared alongside former soldier John Flint and his Labrador Jester who assists him since he suffered a spinal injury during training.

So here are the three breeds that claimed the top spots...

So this is pretty non-specific, but the second favourite UK breed is those of the mixed variety which is pretty hard to pin down. 

So we've found a picture of an adorable Cockapoo (a Cocker Spaniel and Poodle cross) to demonstrate just how darn cute mixed breeds are, no wonder so many of us have them!

1. And the winning dog who has won the affection of the nation is....Labrador!

Are those adorable Andrex puppies to blame for this? Or their trustworthy nature as loyal service animals to those with disabilities? It's hard to say but as 500,000 people are proud owners of this type of pup they've landed the top spot unanimously.
