 I have a Husky-mix rescue. Best dog ever. Class is for mostly not classy people.

At the top of the social scale are Labradors, particularly black ones

Whoohoo. I'm gonna walk my lab around the neighborhood and let her leave a bit of class on every yard. I might get a medal.

Perhaps if you are walking your dog in central London. But a local, not an international story. Nothing of interest to anybody who lives in the United States of America.

The lower middles, if they have dogs, will often try to upgrade their own social status by dubbing their dog something grand like Prince, Duke, Duchess, Venus, Rex.

I named my first dog "Duke". I am so bloody common 🤦🏽♂

I thought black lab was an odd choice for the top of the social scale as well, isn't it about the most common dog breed there is?  Granted, they're great dogs, but hardly unique, not that uniqueness should be the reason you choose a pet.

My neighbors(renters, makr what you will) had a Jack Russell, a mean litt;e dog, would jump up over the fence and bit me, jumped over the fence in the back and purposefully bit bit my Wife. Finally animal control had enough of that of and let his owners know if there were any more reports of that nature, he would be taken away from them. That dog, once he tried ti nip me, I swatted him, and that dog did a 360 midair before he hit the ground. Did he learn? No. i've always wanted a corgi, but with my Wife being allergic, maybe in a few years.
Had a GF, she had a yorkie, it ran away. That makes two of us then.

One time Mika decided she was a lap dog (well, that is all the time, but anyway) and she rammed her head up into my chin.  So, I rammed my chin down into her head in retaliation.

Every time I visit my friend, now, Mika will jump onto the couch and play headbutt-battle with me.  Then sne wiggles on her back and demands belly rubs.

Yeah, well, my dog is Alsaition/Black Lab/Border Collie who thinks he's a cat (was brought from 6 weeks the only doggo, by a house of 4 cats), and was rescued by me and my girl from the junky couple who were owned by those cats.

What's my class?

I'm allergic to dogs. We have Standard Poodles. Hypoallergenic geniuses. Their coat is hair, not fur, so they shed like you do--a couple hairs here and there, no dander. Most of the curly-coated breeds are the same way. Corgis have major back and leg problems that cause serious pain for them, and high costs to you. A lot of them--too many--end up in wheelie carts.

Jack Russell's are psychotic. Territorial as Fark. Had a friend who kept a JR and a greyhound in the house. The JR figured the greyhound was getting too much attention one day and ripped the greyhound's throat out.

Schnauzers are great for their non-shedding properties as well.  But Jesus, the bark a mini will pierce straight through your skull.

My lab-owning friends are my best, but "high class" made me giggle.  That aside wouldn't the classiest of people be classy enough not to value living things for their ability to assert their class?

What about a beagle?  In particular, one with a wart on his nose that he knocked off two days ago and bled all over everything.

Completely unrelated, anyone interested in buying a beagle or a bloody couch?

It's of no interest to people in London either, it's just a paper-filler. I do wonder mind why you expect every news story to involve the US otherwise it's worthless.

My wife is also allergic to dogs.  Loves them, but is allergic to them.

For a hypoallergenic dog we went with a Morkie. . .half Yorkie, half Maltese.  Coat of hair, friendly and loving temperament, cute as a button.

While I'm not agreeing with him, I'll say it's probably the idea that Fark is an American website with a mostly American user base, so there's the question of why is an article about correlation of dog breeds to social class in the UK on this site?

As an American, I find the British preoccupation with social class downright amusing (assuming British TV is an accurate reflection of it, as class conflict is the bulk of the humor in most British comedies I've seen)..
