    I have done research into how many rescues for each breed there are, and I have gone systematically through each state in the US (including Hawaii and Alaska) using various tools such as Petfinder, and I think I have a pretty comprehensive list. Here is a guessing game for you.

    What breed did I find the most rescues for?

    And for extra bonus points:p, what breed did I find the second most rescues for?

    After somebody has guessed, I will post my numbers for all the breeds I have found rescues for.

    That must've taken quite some time!
    My guess is:
    1st- German Shepherd
    2nd- Rottweiler

    DING DING DING DING you got it!

    1. Greyhound with 90 rescues, 1 being national
    2. German Shepherd is a close second with 86 rescues, 0 being national.

    I will post my numbers on Monday. I would post them earlier, but I saved my file as a docx in Word 2007 instead of saving it in Word 2003/97 format, so I have to resave it at work before I can put it online.
