Not surprising labradors are most popular, they tend to be easy going and gentle. Surprised a springer is so popular as they can be a high maintenance breed, needing a lot of exercise.

My God this is so stupid... Shame on Argos for perpetuating incorrect information on dog breeds, as well as the popularity of some breeds, instead of recommending adoption.
Golden Retrievers attract a date better than a Pitbull? That's because people are shallow, and the media say the Golden is good, and the Pitbull is bad. Close-minded people believe everything they randomly hear.
The Basenji doesn't bark? Old legend! They're still pretty noisy even without a typical bark.
The top 10 above is very sad, not only because those breeds are so overrated and often defined as "perfect" or "easy to train" by uniformed people, but especially because the shelters are full (with pure breeds too), and yet people keep buying animals.

Thanks, I always enjoy reading articles on dogs.
I think it says a lot about a person when they choose to own any of the breeds known to be vicious .... I move away from the dog and the person !
Where I live it's often difficult to avoid dogs without a leash which tend to harass other responsible dog owners. I guess they enjoy the possiblity of a dog-fight.
