Despite the number of four-legged tail-wagging friends you might see in your neighborhood, Connecticut is not home to many dogs.
According to the Hartford Business Journal, a new report from the American Veterinary Medical Association ranks Connecticut 49th for pet ownership. The recently released U.S. Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook found that only 28.3 percent of Connecticut households own a dog.
Vermont ranked number one, and the District of Columbia came in last.
Do you own a dog? No? What kind of pet do you have? And are you surprised by this report?
