Last week, we unveiled New Bedford's most popular dog breeds. While the results were somewhat surprising, as we pointed out in the article, the numbers accounted only for dogs that have been properly licensed. There are an unknown amount of dogs that are owned in the city that aren't properly licensed.
One interesting piece of information from New Bedford was that the top 3 most popular dogs were all small lap dogs. After thinking more about this, there is some logic to it, as most people would agree that it's easier to own a small dog in a city setting than a big one.
We decided to see if the same applies to Fall River. We talked to Fall River's City Clerk, who gave us the top 10 dogs in the Spindle City. The small dogs continued to rule the popularity contest, but some of the bigger dogs did better in Fall River than in New Bedford, with both pit bulls and German shepherds ranking higher.
