Screen Shot 2020-02-21 at 1.44.17 PMEmbark, which claims to be the world's leading company in dog genetics, evaluated the DNA of more than 200,000 mixed-breed dogs across the country. According to Embark, "Each dog has a unique combination of breeds in its genetic makeup. When we looked across our data, there was one breed that stood out as the #1 result in a mixed-breed dog in every state."

That breed is the American Pit Bull Terrier, also known as the "pit bull."Embark also reported the second most common breed in mixed-breed dogs by state. In North Carolina and South Carolina, after the pit bull, the second most common breed is Labrador Retriever.

  1. American Pit Bull Terrier
  2. German Shepherd
  3. Chow Chow
  4. Labrador Retriever
  5. Australian Cattle Dog
  6. Boxer
  7. American Staffordshire Terrier
  8. Chihuahua
