Jessie, Eleanor Usher’s Rottweiler, was pregnant, and the couple was informed to expect six to eight puppies. Mother Nature, on the other hand, had a different plan, and everyone was in for a pleasant surprise when it came time for delivery. Jessie started having contractions three days before her due date. The pups simply kept arriving, even though it was the middle of the night!
What’s the final tally? When all was said and done, there were a total of 15 pups! While not a record, it is the UK’s second-biggest litter (the largest being 18!). The family was astonished but overjoyed after seven hours of labor and what seemed like an unending amount of pups.
And Jessie is the most wonderful mother!
She’s been able to feed all of them on her own and give each one the care it deserves.
