Don't miss your chance to vote for the UK’s favourite dog after 10 more breeds have been dropped from the contest.
We need your votes to ensure your best loved breed moves up the leaderboard before the polling ends on Saturday, August 14.
Thousands of votes have been cast since TeamDogs launched the poll in conjunction with Pooch & Mutt, with dog owners all over the country arguing in support of their best-loved breeds.
Every Friday, the 10 least popular breeds in the ‘dog house’ section of the leaderboard are relegated from the competition.
Those eliminated this morning were the Corgi, Toy Poodle, Cavachon, American Bulldog, Tibetan Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Poochon, Bichon Frise, Dobermann, and Pomeranian.
Dog lovers all over the country have been showing support for their favourite breeds. Sarah Davies commented on Wales Online's Facebook post about the contest. She said: "Working cocker spaniels are adorable, though I am biased! Here's mine, Arlo."
Manchester Evening News are backing German Shepherds in the contest. One reader made her case for the breed, Sheryl Cunliffe wrote: "Belle and I reckon GSD all the way!"
Anthony Van Der Seen made his case for Staffordshire Bull Terriers. Commenting on Manchester Evening News’ Facebook page, he said: "Staffies are obviously the best "British" breed."
Earlier this week, three new breeds were added to the competition after readers were invited to lobby for those they thought should be included. They were Bedlington Terrier, Great Dane and the Samoyed.
You now have just eight days to support your favourite dog as the poll closes at 7pm on Saturday, August 14. To keep your favourites out of the dog house and risk being eliminated from the competition, make sure you vote today.
