Ahead of National Dog Day — which takes place on August 26 — a pet medical insurance company surveyed more than 740,000 insured pets to compile a list of the top 10 dog names and breeds for 2022.

Topping the list of names is Luna, who rose from her previous second place in 2021, according to Trupanion. Charlie and Bella come second and third respectively, and two new names have joined the list this year, including Milo and Teddy.

For Best Dog Breeds, Trupanion announced that among their insured pets, mixed breeds got the top spot, but after mixed breeds came labrador retriever at the head of the pack, which will not surprise anyone.

The Labrador retriever has been the number one dog breed in people’s hearts for 31 years, according to the American Kennel Club.

Labradors and Chihuahuas have proven to be the most popular breeds adopted, coming out on top in nearly every state, according to data collected by the Top Data company.
