Data Analysis: NYC Dog Breeds

This word cloud shows the frequency of dog breeds throughout the New York City boroughs.The data is based on legally registered dogs. I guess it’s not surprising that small dog breeds would be more popular in a dense city. But what’s more interesting is that pure breeds like Shih tzus (I’m a Shih tzu owner myself, yet I’ve never know how to spell it) and Yorkies are amongst the most numerous.
