Unbeatable since 2018, the Australian Shepherd still occupies first place in the hearts of the French! In 2021, 20,449 LOF registrations were recorded for this shepherd dog also called Australian Shepherd or Aussie. A dog that seduces as much by its original physique (especially if the coat is blue or red merle!), as by its sensitive and endearing character.

3. The Belgian Shepherd

The one who occupied first place on this podium for two consecutive years (2016 and 2017) continues to seduce the French. In fact, the Belgian Shepherd has alternated between second and third position for 10 years! This is explained because this dog with a lively temperament and the face of an angel is extremely charismatic. His loyalty to his master is exceptional, which makes him a dog suitable for both work and more fun activities!

4. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Better known as the Staffie , the Staffordshire bull terrier is a medium-sized dog which does not exceed 17 kg for the strongest males. However, don't be fooled by its size, it's a little ball of energy full of muscles! Particularly vigorous and playful , the Staffie is a pot of glue who would like to spend his days exercising alongside his master.

10. The Beagle

The Beagle closes this Top 10 of French people's favorite dogs in 2021 . Medium in size, the Beagle has a really developed sense of smell which pushes him to run away from a very young age.
