The American Kennel Club has released its registration statistics for 2010, and the lovable Dachshund retains its spot as the 8th most popular dog in America, same as 2009. The Dachshund was the 4th most popular dog in 2000, 6th in 2006, and 7th in 2007 and 2008. Of course, these are registration statistics, and heaven only knows how many Dachshunds aren't registered with the AKC each year. The Dachshund seems to have lost popularity in many major cities across America, most notably New York, where we were in the top 5 for the past 6 years, but fell to 7th in 2010.
