If asked what you think is the most popular dog in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, how would you answer? I would easily say it is either German Shepherd or Golden Retriever and both answers would be wrong.
I have no idea what a Havanese is, but according to the Honest Paws, this is the most popular dog in the state of New Jersey. We learned that a “Havanese is the national dog of Cuba”. While many people have probably never heard of the Havenese dog breed, Honest Paws stated that the Havenese is actually the second most popular and most Googled dog breed in the country. In five different states, including New Jersey, Havenese is the most popular dog.

Pennsylvania has a favorite cooler dog. At least it is for me. According to the Honest Paws, Pennsylvania residents said that boxers are their favorite dogs, which makes the Boxer dog breed the most popular in Pennsylvania. The interesting part is that Honest Paws announced that only 2 states across the country have been the ones that Googled the Boxer dog breed the most often compared to other dog breeds.

Another interesting fact is that while not many states chose Bulldog as their favorite dog breed, Honest Paws stated that Bulldog bread was the “most wanted dog” in the country.
My favorite breed of dog, Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff) didn’t stand a chance and was nowhere on the list. It was not the favorite breed of dog for any state in the country.
