With the Papa Johns Mutt Strut coming up, we asked you what dog breed Greenville would be.

The Papa Johns Mutt Strut — coming up on Saturday, April 27 — got us thinking. We asked you what dog breed Greenville would be and why.

The resounding winner was Golden Retriever because:

  • “They are sooo friendly!” — Marilyn J.
  • “Greenville is fun and welcoming!” — Paula K.
  • “They become part of the family. They are loyal, playful, friendly, protective, curious, inviting, and, as the ‘retriever’ part indicates, they keep people coming back to our wonderful city.” — Molly Jo R.
  • “Greenville is beautiful, friendly, and fun!” — Berry G.

We couldn’t agree more, but we couldn’t omit these honorable mentions.

  • “PUG. For sure. We even have a pug meet-up group!” — Amy P.
  • Golden doodle. Trendy, friendly, and a good boy.” — Courtney K.
  • “A long haired Chihuahua, because we’re a little town with big town feel.” — Stacey F.
