A dog in East Texas has set the state’s record for largest litter of puppies.
“Monclair Brady, a mastiff, had 17 puppies,” according to KLTV. “She spent 22 hours in labor and is now the proud mom of 12 girls and five boys.”
The dog’s human family was told to expect eight puppies, so they were more than a bit surprised when the pups just kept on coming.
According to KLTV, “The world record for largest litter is 24, so she came a few short, but the state record was 16,” making her the new local champ.
This is the dog’s second litter, and her owner told KLTV it will be her last.KLTV.com-Tyler, Longview, Jacksonville, Texas | ETX News
