What are New York state's most popular pet breeds? – Albany Times Union

Mixed breeds, designer dogs and Yorkies are New York's most popular dog breeds, according to Pets Best Insurance Services.

According to the insurance company's records of its clients, New York dog owners tend to choose smaller dog breeds compared to other states.

Cats are a popular choice for major metropolitan areas, but only one cat to every four dogs is insured in New York, the company said.
