Based on data from the American Kennel Club (which registers 190 dog breeds total), this tail-wagging list includes a countdown of 100 different kinds of doggos. We adore all pups — including big dogs and little dogs, and every size in between — but only five could make it to the very top of the list. That’s why we’re taking a close look at what makes these pups in particular so lovable.

After all, it’s well known that many dogs are amazing companions for humans. In fact, some research suggests that the bond between people and pups might be as old as 14,000 years. However, any doggo enthusiast knows very well that no two furry friends are exactly alike. They all have unique personality traits and fun little quirks that make them special — and the top five most popular dog breeds are no different.

So take a moment to learn about America’s favorite pups, look through a few oh-so-adorable photos, and see if your fur baby made the list!
