Dalmatian gives birth to 16 puppies making vet say “There surely can’t be anymore” as they keep coming

When an owner brought in her dalmatian in the midst of labor, it was all hands on deck at the Fredericksburg veterinary clinic.Dalmations are one of the most well-known, albeit uncommon, dog breeds.It’s probably because of the 1996 film 101 Dalmations, but Dalmations have a long history behind those spotted coats!

One dog-mom recently gave birth to a HUGE litter and it’s pretty astonishing.

While we can’t say this litter has 101 puppies, we can say it’s truly incredible.A Texas dog owner recently made headlines when the story of her dog giving birth went viral.Brittni Turner, who works at the Fredericksburg Veterinary Center in Texas, assisted with the births.

Luna, the mother dog, went into labor around midnight on Thursday.Luna and her human mother gave birth to five puppies during the night, but by 7 a.m., things had come to a halt.Birthing a dog is much easier than it is for a human, so this was not natural.

Luna’s owner decided to bring the dog to the clinic after calling.

They reasoned that bringing her in would be beneficial because larger dogs do not have many complications.Something was clearly wrong once she was inside.Luna was rushed to the hospital after it was discovered that the sixth puppy in the litter had breeched.

They discovered that there were a LOT more puppies to come after looking inside!

The puppies continued to emerge one by one.

‘There can’t be any more!’ I kept saying to the owner.And they kept saying, ‘Surely there can’t be any more!'”‘I know there’s at least two more,’ I said.’Oh, there’s definitely one more,’ I’d say.No, there are two more.’

They were so taken aback by the sheer volume that they kept miscounting them!To assist with the massive delivery, the clinic requested “all hands on deck.”

Everyone in the clinic was needed to pitch in, including the receptionist!Everything was soon over, and they were able to get a final count.There were 5 puppies born naturally, and another 11 via c-section – A TOTAL OF 16 PUPPIES!

The final count was 16 puppies, which is an incredible number.

“We are pleased to report that all 16 puppies and mom are recovering well from surgery,” the clinic wrote.”It wasn’t 101 Dalmatians, but it was enough to keep us busy this morning!!”Luna has been an excellent mother since her child’s birth.She has been taking excellent care of her children and demonstrating her mothering abilities.The world record for the most Dalmation births is 19 (which occurred in 2019), so they were three short.Still, 16 dogs in a house is a lot of work!

Imagine 16 puppies and their mother running around a house.

Usually, one dog suffices for a family of four.It appears that they will need to find a few more buyers in order to keep their house from becoming a circus!With so many Dalmations around, they might want to keep an eye out for a certain Disney villain who has a thing for Dalmation puppies.
