Dog Has 21 Puppies (Daisy May In Labor For Over 20 Hours)

It took nearly twenty hours for Daisy May to give birth to a litter of 21 puppies. Four of the pups did not survive but the remaining seventeen are very healthy and are now ready for adoption. The dog's owners have decided that this litter is more then enough so Daisey May is now on the road to retirement.

Daisy's significant other is a registered Bulldog that goes by the name of Groucho. No news on whether or not his breeding days are over.

This is definitely a rare case because most litters will be around 5 to 10 pups. The size of the litter greatly depends on the breed. To date the largest litter of puppies ever recorded was 24!!!

If your intention is not to breed or cannot guarantee a quality home for each and every puppy, we recommend you spay and neuter your animal. Most shelters offer discounted programs. Check your local Humane Society for details.
