With two books currently hitting the UK shelves about the lovable Labrador written by TV presenter Ben Fogle and dog behaviourist, Pippa Mattinson, you might be surprised to hear that it seems Pugs top the charts as the most sought after pet says online marketplace, eBay.co.uk.
With celebs including Gerard Butler, Kelly Brook and Paris Hilton stepping out with the pint sized pet once beloved by Queen Victoria, the online marketplace has seen more than 300 pug related products sold every day on site, that is 13 every hour – with listings covering everything from a £1,400 pug painting to a ‘Beware of the Pug’ sign that could be yours for as little as 99p.
Meanwhile, the loyal Labrador, trots in second on the doggy ranking, selling 91 Lab related products a day with live listings including a £300 tablecloth and the bijoux sized French Bulldog breed, closely related to the champion Pugs, make third place having sold just 4,300 products in the last three months. The German Shepherd and beloved Staffie come in fourth and fifth respectively.
