This chart, from David McCandless’ book Knowledge is Beautiful, that ranks 87 dog breeds and compares those rankings to the actual popularity of the breeds in the US.

The ranking is based on a number of factors: trainability, life expectancy, lifetime cost (including the price of food and grooming), and suitability for children, among others.

This chart is interesting, however, in the end, the best dog, is the dog that suites you best.
