Everyone is happy when a dog is born, and the number of cubs is always amazing.
Neapolitan Mastiff Shadow became pregnant at the age of 4 and his owners are more than happy to meet their children.
According to Shadow owner Stacy Rowe, they’ll be happy enough if their dog gives birth to 10 little puppies.
When she gave birth to three little puppies, her entire family gathered to give the Shadow Power. But when they noticed that something was wrong, they immediately threw him to the vet.
The veterinarian was surprised to find that Suudri performed a cesarean section and removed more than 18 puppies from the dog’s intestines.
Shadow is now the Australian record holder for the number of puppies.
The States family initially thought about how to care for all the puppies, but soon developed a care schedule for the little Shadows.
Three of the shadow children did not survive, but the remaining 18 were immediately adopted by the Stacy family.
