Vote for Britain’s favourite dog breed as OKs pick is a close contender

Calling all dog lovers! Sign up to TeamDogs for your weekly dose of dog news, pictures and stories.

Cockapoos currently rank in the top five in the race to find the UK's favourite dog breed – but with just weeks until the polling ends they need your vote to stay in the running.

Competition for the top spot has been fierce with more than 2,000 votes cast from across the country so far.

OK is backing Cockapoos as the nation’s most cherished breed – currently in fifth place – but you can vote for whichever dog you like the most at our sister site Team Dogs.

Don’t worry if you’ve already taken part – from today you will be able to register a second vote.

Every Friday morning, the 10 least popular breeds are dropped from the competition so make sure you don’t miss your chance to keep your favourite in the running.

Those eliminated on Friday were Basset Fauve De Bretagne, Welsh Springers, Havanese, Poochon, Irish Setter, Maltipom, St Bernard, Irish Wolfhound, Pekingese and Afghan Hounds.

A further 10 are now in the ‘dog house’ section of the leaderboard and risk being relegated later this week.

Let’s face it, a mix of a cocker spaniel and curly haired poodle is bound to make a gorgeous dog.

But this teddy bear-resembling crossbreed is also intelligent and entirely devoted to its owners – and will never leave your side.

With their high energy levels, the spaniel mix is always up for an adventure and can walk for miles. They are also happy to curl up on the sofa or nuzzle up against your feet. They are the best of both worlds.

Our readers had a lot to say in support of Cockapoos. Bridget Loney posted on Facebook: “They are a mixed breed, but what a great mix! Many years before it was fashionable I rescued a poodle crossed with a bearded collie. She won every mixed breed dog show she ever entered – such a beautiful dog. The poodle brings an amazing element – super clever and coats that don’t shed.”

Make sure to support your favourite breed to keep them in the running. You can see the leaderboard and cast your vote here.
