Although they were mentally prepared based on the results of the ultrasound, the couple could not have expected that the actual results were too much to imagine.
In 2011, 3-year-old dog Romy from England set the record as one of the most born dogs in the world. Achieving such a splendid record, but Romy also made their owner astonished.
Ms. Natasha White and Mr. Copping Alicia, owner of Romy, living in Coventry, West Midlands, England, said that their pet dog is Aile hound. Usually, this breed only gives birth to 7 to 8 children per litter. On the day when the pet dog went into labor, the owner Natasha White was prepared to welcome the lovely puppies.
However, after 12 o’clock Romy struggled, Ms. Natasha White could not believe her eyes and had to count the number of puppies over and over. In total, 15 dogs, including 10 female dogs and 5 male dogs, weighed between 275 and 339 grams, not 8 or 9 as previously predicted.
“We gave Romy an ultrasound when she was four weeks pregnant and we found that the animal only had a maximum of 8-9 babies,” said Natasha. So you can’t imagine how shocked my family was when Romy gave birth so much.
Natasha shared that although she could not open her eyes completely, the puppies still look for their mothers to breastfeed every two hours, throughout the day. “Romy is probably tired after giving birth to 15 children. We let him walk around the garden when he was born with 10 puppies. Two hours later, the 11th child was born. The last one was the biggest that made Romy put more strength into pushing her away, “Natasha recalls.
Natasha said Romy does not have enough milk for all 15 babies so she has to feed them with formula, bottle instead of breastfeeding. Natasha White and Copping Alicia created a separate website for Romy as a reward for the animal and its children. The website www.rosarenosirishsetters.co.uk is also the place to record the growth of these adorable dogs.
