Great Dane's 19 Puppies a Surprise to Pennsylvania Owners

By    |   Tuesday, 18 Nov 2014 05:20 PM

A Great Dane in York County, Pennsylvania, recently gave birth to a litter of 19 puppies.

The mother, Snowy, belongs to Brandon and Aimie Terry, who said they knew their Great Dane was pregnant, but didn’t expect such a large litter, WHTM-TV reported.

A typical Great Dane litter includes between seven and 10 puppies, the station reported. An X-ray at the veterinarian’s office found 15 puppies.

The puppies were born about three weeks ago, a week earlier than expected.

“We were not prepared,” Aimie Terry told WHTM-TV.

Brandon Terry was doing yard work and heard a noise that he thought was a mewing kitten. When he went to investigate, he discovered a newborn puppy. Seven puppies were born at home, and the rest were born at an animal hospital.

A Neapolitan mastiff in Cambridgeshire, England, holds the record for largest litter of puppies, with 24 born in 2004.

The Great Dane pups are expected to reach about three feet in height and weight about 100 pounds.
