    It's mainly cross breeds here but I suppose..

    1. Staffie type dogs (Sorry don't really know the breeds of them)
    2. German Shepards
    3. Westies

    And the odd labrador, collie, spaniel but like I said it's just about all cross breeds.

    I know of 1 other poodle who lives down the street. We met her the other week when out a walk and Cheeko loved her :D

    Or high energy cross breeds, because of all the fields and trials here.

    Where I used to live it was yorkies there were about a hundred of them, jack russels, westies, staffies, rottweilers.
    Here it tends to be large dogs 2 shar peis I know they're not that big, a tibetan mastiff and a few others and none are "status dogs". Theres a few chihuahua and pugs too.

    Around here you see alot of Boxers, Chihuahuas, Collies and alot of mixed breeds. Mostly medium sized dogs because that is the largest aloud in our community.

    In my area the most popular breed by far is the Labrador (usually brown).

    Staffordshire Bull Terriers (thankfully, due to bad owners!) are less popular than they used to be but still quite common,

    In 3rd place is close between Westies and English Springer Spaniels. Mini Schnauzers are popular around here too - I think I started a trend!
