Interactive: The most popular dog names in Mecklenburg

How many beagles named Snoopy live in Mecklenburg? 22. How about collies named Lassie? None.

Those are just a couple findings from an analysis of county dog licenses by WCNC-TV, the Observer's news partner. The station reviewed more than 109,000 licenses from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Control.

A couple more tidbits from their report: Bella is the most popular dog name in the county (1,311 dogs have it) while there are more Labrador Retrievers (15,334) registered than other dog breeds.
