Not counting mix-breeds, which probably comprise the majority of dogs in most countries. Good data are available for the UK and USA, harder to get statistics elsewhere.

Most popular breeds in the UK: Labradors, German Shepherds, West Highland terriers (Westies), Golden Retrievers and Spaniels (Cocker, Springer and King Charles).

The top 7 breeds In the USA are similar in the top 3, but rather different after that: Labrador, Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, Dachshund, Beagles, Poodles, Chihuahua.

German shepherds, Labs and retrievers are pretty popular throughout the English world, but there are interesting variations after that. Rhodesian Ridgebacks are very popular in South Africa, for instance.

As for naming patterns, the most popular boy dog names in the USA are:
Max, Jake, Buddy, Bailey, Sam, Buster and Rocky. Top 7 girl dog names in the USA, in 2004, were Maggie, Molly, Lady, Sadie, Lucy, Daisy and Ginger.

In the UK, boy dogs tend to be called: Sam, Spot, Pip, Duke, Piper, Charlie and Max. Girl British dogs are getting lumbered with Trixie, Polly, Jessie, Bonnie, Cassie, Lucy and Daisy.

Scavenger is right about the popular dog breeds. In Malaysia, the Labrador is pretty popular too. Popular names here are "Kopi" which means coffee, usually for a black Labrador, and "Ah Wong" which means golden and of course, used to name a golden Labrador.
Some Chinese believe that it is auspicious to name your dog "Ah Wong" because of how it means golden, therefore bringing you prosperity.
