Their study found that the Boxer is the UK’s most wanted dog breed, with an average of 3,204,000 searches a year.

However, their research revealed that the Staffordshire Bull Terrier didn’t crack the top 10 as it was beaten by breeds like the Beagle and Dachshund.

In second place on the list behind the boxer is the Japanese dog breed Shiba Inu, which had 3,036,000 searches in the last 12 months. However, this high number of searches could be due to the fact that the cryptocurrency has the same name.

The French Bulldog ranks third on the list of the most popular dog breeds in the UK, with the small dog breed generating an estimated 2,484,000 searches in 2021 while the Cocker Spaniel ended up fifth.

Commenting on the study, a spokesperson for MapleCasino said, “Dogs are one of the most popular pets in UK households, so it’s interesting to see which breeds are the most popular in the country.

“The data shows that the boxer is the most popular breed, and this is likely because they have desirable traits such as playful, intelligent, and loyal. During the bans of the past few years, many people have sought company in this form.” a dog as a keeper can often spend more time with his four-legged friend by working at home. “
