As the statistic shows, the United Kingdom is the leading European country for dogs, with over half of dogs owners owning a pedigree dog. This term defines a dog that has a traceable ancestry and breeding line. This may be useful to pet owners when looking for an animal with good health conditioning, or if the owner is interested in a very specific look for the dog. Pedigree dogs are predominantly bread for purchase.
In Romania, at least 46 percent of the population own one dog at home, this is nearly double that of the United Kingdom where 24 percent of the population own a dog.
