Doctors Lose Count As Great Dane Delivers ‘Never-Ending’ Litter

Cleo is a special Great Dane who has recently found herself in the news. Those who are unaware of Cleo’s exploits will definitely want to read on and learn more. If you are a lover of puppies, this story is going to be a true crowd pleaser. Ever since her story was shared on Facebook, it has received thousands of likes and for very good reason!

She is one resilient pup. Cleo was recently taken to the Kingman Animal Hospital and she was very pregnant at the time. The animal doctors on staff decided that they would need to perform a C-section. By the time they were done delivering all of the puppies, observers were amazed. A whopping 19 puppies were born and it was described as a “never ending” litter.

Every time the doctors thought that they were done, another puppy would emerge. We would like to take this time to congratulate the mother dog on all of her hard work. Anyone who has ever had to listen to their mother complain about how hard the labor process was will relate to this one. This mother is going to be holding this one over her babies’ heads for quite some time, we would imagine!

According to the doctors on the scene, Cleo’s pregnancy had caused her weight to balloon. While the average Great Dane typically weighs in at 100 pounds, Cleo weighed 143 pound at the time of the birth. We are not sure how she was able to lug the babies around for this long. This breed does not usually deliver this many puppies at the same time.

In most instances, the average Great Dane will only give to ten puppies. The number of puppies that she gave birth to is unheard of, minus an occurrence in Pennsylvania five years ago. The doctors even admitted that they had lost count at a certain point. Just imagine how awesome it would be to see 19 puppies in the same place at the same time, though. Once the pictures were shared, the Internet was left in awe.

How could you not end up swooning at the sight of 19 puppies? It is not every day that you get to see something like this. Be sure to share this awesome story with your closest friends and loved ones as soon as possible. Some might call this puppy overload but we do not believe in such things.
