Few countries are as besotted with dogs as Great Britain, with 24 percent of the country owning the mischief makers.

And tonight the country's favourite breed is set to be revealed on ITV's 100 favourite dogs: Top 100.

The result comes after 10,000 dog lovers were asked for their favourite breed of mutt.

The nation's most commonly owned breed, the Labrador, also features in the top 10 - over 500,000 own the popular breed.
