Using city data collected in Indianapolis, Rover determined that the Great Dane is the most popular dog breed in Indiana. And like Indiana, Kentucky is head over heels for this breed, per city data from Louisville. Despite their intimidating size, the Great Dane is a gentle giant. They frequently serve as watchdogs, but also make for great family pets because they are patient and friendly with children.
Iowa and New Hampshire: Golden Retriever
As one of the most popular breeds nationally, the Golden Retriever is dearly beloved in many states, but especially in Iowa and New Hampshire. Goldens are not only attractive dogs, with long silky coats, they are also among the friendliest. These dogs are outgoing and eager-to-please, making them both trainable and wonderful as companion animals. Besides being family-oriented, these dogs can be the perfect companion for hikes and outdoor adventures. Goldens are high energy and do best with lots of space to run around, but a good game of fetch in a park or romp in a lake will please them just as well.
Kansas and Wyoming: Rottweiler
The Sunflower State of Kansas loves the Rottweiler. While perceived as serious protectors, these muscular dogs have very goofy personalities, though the AKC cautions to avoid roughhousing with this breed which can encourage unnecessary aggression. Like Kansas, Wyoming is a big fan of the "Rottie." They do well with athletic activities and Wyoming offers ample space for hiking, running, and swimming with your dog. These dogs are easy to train, active and athletic, and make great family pets.
As for rottweilers, we had Brax, of course. A foundling puppy that Dd gave us.
We had a shared dog at a house that we lived in once. KC the harlequin Great Dane. She was taller than me when she stood on her hind legs, and we got along famously. Sweet girl.
Then, our vet had multiple Danes.
But, the first one that I ever knew was a grumpy old guy who was the 2nd largest Dane in the world at the time. He was *huge* (He didn't have to get off of all 4's to be big to me!) and taught me to give plenty of respect to the breed. Normally, they are so friendly that you treat them like a golden retriever practically, but this one demanded respect, and I never forgot that as I got older. He would actually growl at you in various situations; and he was a show dog! My best friend lived next door to him, and he never did anything dangerous toward us...but again, we didn't push our luck! As an adult, I think that with his size and age, that he had painful joint problems, causing his grumpiness.
