Unsurprisingly, Miamians seem to have a strong preference for the kind of dogs you wouldn't want fuck with: German shepherds, rottweilers, pinschers and boxers. Even the more gentle dogs here are big and sturdy, including the lab, bulldog and golden retriever.
Of course, Miami is home to its fair share of housewives as well, so its no surprise that a few cute lil' lap dogs like the Yorkie, French bulldog and Maltese actually make the list.
Whatever the case, Miami seems to have its own distinct taste in pups. Four of the breeds that make America's overall top ten fail to register in Miami:
1. Labrador retriever
2. German shepherd
4. Golden retriever
5. Yorkshire terrier
