36. 1966: German Shepherd
German Shepherds got a spike in popularity in '66 thanks to the war hero dog, Nemo. While on patrol with his handler, Nemo barked and alerted that enemy troops were approaching, letting the soldier brace himself for the inevitable shots that rang out. Both dog and soldier were hit, but they managed to survive and came back home as war heroes.
