Is your pup's breed on the list? 

They say dogs are a man's best friends so we're curious - who are our country's best friends?

The University of Sydney went ahead and answered our question (thanks guys) by conducting an analysis of data collected by the Australian National Kennel Council to find the most popular dog breeds in Australia. What they found was that there was an increase in the popularity of smaller dogs because they are cuter and fit better with apartment-style living. But there was, of course, a bit of a mix and a few very unexpected items on the list there too.

And without further ado, here it is.

1. American Staffordshire Terrier

2. Australian Cattle Dog
