A litter of 18 dogs had been born by the time the mama dog had given birth.
Dogs are known for giving birth to many puppies. Dalmatians, for example, give birth to an average of six to nine puppies per litter.
But no one could have predicted what would happen when a Dalmatian named Nelly became pregnant.
Before the mother, the dog gave birth to a litter of 18 puppies, which is currently a record family.
Dalmatian Nelly is expecting a baby.
Nellie became pregnant before she was 3 years old. Veterinarians estimate that by then she will have only three children. It wasn’t until she went into labor that everyone realized how wrong the veterinarians had been.
Nelly’s mother, Louise Clement, said that when she gave birth, Nelly had an easy life, but puppies kept coming. Nelly was finally born after over 14 hours of labor with ten boys and eight girls. This is a great joy.
“I assumed she stopped after number 15 because she looked like she was asleep”. But then another appeared, followed by two more. Nelly will be a wonderful mother. “I’m very proud of him”, Clement added.
This is a large litter of puppies, but Clement seems to be worried. His house is designed for a large number of kids, as he is a breeder.
