Do You Know What Dog Breed Gave Birth To The Largest Litter?

Do you have any idea how many puppies were born of from a mommy dog?

The answer is 24. Yes, 24! Imagine that number of puppies trying to run to you at the end of the day. Think Beethoven the movie five times over. Oh and the mess these little ones will do around the house. And walking them would be a catastrophic.

This Guinness World Record holder mother dog is no other than Tia. Tia whose full name is Abellatino Arabella is a Neopolitan Mastiff. The owners are Damian Ward and Anne Kellegher.

Such world known event happened last November 29, 2004 in Manea, United Kingdom. A certain Caesar is the father dog’s name.

Although there were a total of 24 puppies, 1 was stillborn and 3 died in the first week. The litter consisted of nine females and 15 males. Delivery was through Cesarean section.

That leaves 20 puppies to take care of after a week. Hopefully, they all found a good home to live a pawsome dog life.
