A survey by luxury website VeryFirstTo has named Labradors as the most fashionable furry friend you can own.

Golden Retrievers claimed second place, with Disney fans scoring a win as Dalmatians took third.

Fourth and fifth place went to Miniature Schnauzers and Yorkshire Terriers, which are often seen squeezing into the purses and bags of celebrities, while the similarly miniscule West Highland Terriers and Boston Terriers came sixth and seventh.

Poodles, a staple of haute-couture, landed at eighth, Staffordshire Bull Terriers came in ninth and Chihuahuas rounded out the top ten, according to the survey which was saw responses from 2164 members of VeryFirstTo from around the world.

Unfortunately for Dandie Dinmont Terrier owners, one breed had to be named least fashionable, with the miniature pooch taking home last place honours. Norwegian Lundehunds and Otterhounds joined them as part of the bottom three.

The survey comes as the website, along with Italy-based online luxury retailer Forzieri, launches miniature versions of designer handbags for dogs – known as ‘pawbags’ – which replicate the owner’s chosen bag from a selection of partner brands.

Prices for the bag packages, which include the owner’s bag and the replica version, range from $507 to $5,119 (US).
