To Unveil the Top 125 Dogs in Pop Culture


New York, NY – Proving that Snoopy is the hippest dog of all, “Joe Cool” himself was named the top dog in pop culture by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and AOL’s PawNation.com today during a press conference in front of a special Snoopy exhibit at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City.  The ranking, created in celebration of the AKC’s 125th anniversary this year, brings together canines from diverse backgrounds for a candid look at how dogs have been woven into every aspect of American culture from film and literature to sports and art.


A surprising second place went to Texas A&M’s mascot Reveille, showing Texas A&M students cheered louder than Georgetown (Jack the Bulldog), University of Georgia (UGA) and Yale (Handsome Dan) fans for the Collie that ranked higher than Lassie.


“There is no question that America loves dogs,” said AKC Spokesperson Lisa Peterson. “One look at popular culture proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that dogs have always had a profound influence on our daily lives. The collaboration between the AKC and Pawnation.com, in celebration of the AKC’s 125 anniversary, allowed the public to voice their opinions on the dogs that made the biggest impact over the years.”


Top 10 Dogs in Pop Culture:

  1. Snoopy
  2. Texas A&M’s Reveille
  3. Scooby Doo
  4. Eddie from the TV show Frasier
