Biggest Litter?

Postby Misskiwi67 » Sat May 12, 2018 9:01 am

My Ari just whelped 17 pups, 13 survivors. I keep hearing "that's gotta be a record!" but I see 12+ all the time. There's gotta be quite a few dogs that have carried that many. What's the biggest litter you have heard of?

I heard of two or three 14 member Griff litters.

Congrats and good luck with the litter. My pup's grandmother welped 15 and then 14 pups in consecutive litters. She was then retired from breeding, still in her prime.

There is a litter I believe in ND that had 16 born this spring. I’m am not sure if all survived or not.

That’s a big litter! I have also heard of some dogs having consistently small litters? Is this sort of thing genetic? Large or small litter sizes?

Another DD just had a litter of 17, so there must be something in the water.

Thanks everyone!!
