Are you counting them? So did us when we first discovered
about them. Isn't it amazing that a mom dog gave birth to all of these puppies
at the same time?
It was December 5th last year when the owners Josh and Terri were left surprised by their 4-year-old Great Dane from Alabama â€“ Velma. She left them with all these puppies. The owners were expecting 10 puppies at most from their dog, but she in fact gave birth to NINETEEN healthy, living and kicking puppies in a same day. The whole delivering process took place in 18 hours (average of one puppy per hour of the process).
Isn't every single one of them adorable? Velma's condition is
good and unprecedented. Keeping one baby healthy and well-nourished is tough,
so imagine having to feed all 19 little and hungry Great Danes all the time.
Boy, that must be tough! The family with the largest known dog breed in the
world is now known as the largest known Great Dane litter in the United States.
The family has decided to help Velma feed all the puppies by
supplementing Velma's milk supply with goat milk and Esbilac formula. They feed
the puppies every 3 to 4 hours to keep them healthy. Half of the milk is
fed by Velma and the other half by the formula.
