It is not a secret that dogs procreated too many pups on every pregnancy period. But in this story, the number of pups is very huge.
Our story today will be about Bailee, a 4-year-old African Boerboel who gave birth to one of the largest litters of puppies in history, although still not the largest.
According to the Guinness World Records, the largest litter contained 24 puppies born in 2004 in the United Kingdom.
Momma dog Bailee was impregnated by a male African Boerboel named Mayhem with the help of the teaching hospital’s animal reproductive branch.
When Dr. Aimee Johnson, the veterinarian at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine conducted a radiograph on pregnant Bailee, it showed at least 14 or 15 puppies growing inside of her.
So Dr. Aimee Johnson decided to use a C-section surgery, because It is more safe for the puppies and mother, and a natural birth for a litter that size would be a long delivery for the mother.
Unfortunately, one of the tiny puppies did not make it during the delivery, and another passed in the following weeks, the others are happy, healthy, and thriving.
We can mention here that the dogs stayed at the hospital for a month, where a especially puppy nanny made sure the babies were fed every four hours.
We will see in the video, what it looks like when 17 puppies rush to nurse from their mama. it is really adorable scene, you will can’t take your eyes away.
The cute little puppies climb over each other, jump, and squirm! Their human owner Jerry Turner, hopes to find good homes for each of the babies once they reach 8 weeks old.
Turner is very happy because the little puppies doing well and they are very loving, very affectionate and highly intelligent dogs.
