It literally changed my life when I got the chance to play with a newborn dog. Unfortunately i had to return him afterwards to his mother and his five siblings.
Puppies clearly are so adorable. However a dog giving birth does not correspond to the same opinion. The birth can be distressing, nerve-racking and downright gross just like human births. It’s for sure amazing but definitely awe-inspiring. It’s usual to expect a few offspring at once for most of pregnant dogs. Sometimes things get a little crazier. It’s not out of the ordinary that dog births can be multiples. However more than five or ten are very unusual.
A Shelter picked this pit bull up when this sweet soul was abandoned. A fostering startet to volunteer her. They obviously realized that she is pregnant. They assumed that a lot of new faces will get added to the brood.
When the vet showed them the dogs X-ray an uncountable number of skeletons inside her uterus where visible. This was something that definitely nobody was expecting.
It was impossible to tell how many pups the pit bull mother is expecting. Before taking a bunch of X-rays from different angles it was even for the vet not possible to figure it out. They guessed that it could be seven or eight but also 12 or 13 can be possible.
,,I don’t know how many she is having but there’s heaps! Like 12 to 15.’’ Said the future owner of the dog. Clearly the puppies will have it easy to find a new home. So after the pit bull mother’s pregnancy she’s adopting the dog.
The exact amount of puppies can only get figured out when the dog goes into labor and gives birth to them. Other dog owners have also to wait alongside their dog to learn how many puppies their dog actually carried.
The babies need to spend time with their mother once they are born. The puppies get to find their own forever homes when they weaned themselves off breast milk. Also they should know how to walk, play and handle themselves around people.
The photos got a lot of attention. The people were literally blown away. They left comments like: ,,She’s beautiful mail me a puppy!’’, ,,My god that’s a lot of puppies! Sometimes I thin I counted like 18ish in there, maybe more.’’ And a lot of others said ,,Congrats on your new dog!’’
For this adorable mom-to-be I wish the best of luck and also for the new dog parents that get to adopt her precious little puppies.
