If you're looking to add a new furry friend to the family, the American Kennel Club has a recommendation for you.

For the 25th year in a row, the club has named the labrador retriever as the most popular breed in the United States.

Beagles, bulldogs, german shepherds and golden retreivers are also part of the top five breeds.

The AKC said Americans prefer dogs that are easy to care for and are family friendly.
