A study on the mean average of dog reproduction shows that the small dogs generally give birth to 3.5 puppies per litter, while the bigger dogs give birth to 7.1 puppies per litter.

Regardless, there have been some outstanding numbers, such as when a 3-year-old great Dane delivered a litter of 19 puppies in 2014. And history repeated itself at Kingman Animal Hospital on the 23rd of February, 2019.

Great Dane gives birth to 19 puppies

Kingman Animal Hospital hosted one of their most special deliveries on Saturday. The capable hands of eleven staff members in the animal hospital assisted a great Dane to deliver 19 healthy puppies.

It was a tasking delivery and vets had to resort to a Cesarean section.

She was taken to the sterile surgical room to be sterilized. It was a lengthy process, but it was worth it in the end.
