CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Chicago loves its Labradors!

More than 38,000 dogs are licensed through the City Clerk's Office. DNAinfo Chicago categorized them by breed and zip code.

Far and away, the most popular dog in Chicago is the Labrador Retriever. It dominates every zip code on the North Side.

The Pit Bull ranks No. 2, with big numbers on the South and West sides. No. 3? The German Shepherd. Taking No. 4 is the little Chihuahua, with a strong showing in several West Side neighborhoods.

The Clerk's office points out that these are just registered dogs; there are tens of thousands of dogs in the city that are not registered.
