(hint: it's almost certainly a Labrador Retriever)
(that's the dog at top left below):

The top-20 dogs in Britain:-
1. Labrador Retriever; 2. Jack Russell Terrier; 3. Staffordshire Bull Terrier; 4. Border Collie; 5. Cocker Spaniel
6. English Springer Spaniel; 7. German Shepherd; 8. Yorkshire Terrier; 9. Shih Tzu; 10. Cavalier King Charles
11. West Highland White; 12. Golden Retriever; 13. Boxer; 14. Border Terrier; 15. Rottweiler
16. Chihuahua; 17. Lhasa Apso; 18. Bichon Frise; 19. Lurcher; 20. Greyhound

The BBC has analysed 10 years of microchipping data & put it up as an interactive-postcode map of Britain.

One surprising result:- there are *far* more dogs in Notts than Herts (9,800 Labrador Retrievers, etc. in 'Nottingham' but just 4,500 in Stevenage).
