    I am surprised Border Collie isn't in the top 10, but then again most BC's aren't necersarilly KC registered and are farm bred or registered with the ISDS instead

    It must be bacuse a lot aren't KC registered, because no matter where we go walking, be it round home, or 300 miles away, border collies always outnumber most other breeds

    Yeah I'm guessing a lot are working lines rather than from show lines because they are really common here too.

    I would say "Hotdog" is the number one breed in the UK.

    I have no idea I only saw the top 20 I'll go see if I can find out.
    Edit: Could only find the number registered 1500 roughly a lot of dogs no idea where they were on the table though.

    Thats what I was on it was just too much effort to try and work it out. Maybe not as many as I thought there were more cairns registered I didn't think they were a very big breed.
