Mom's name is Cleo and she delivered the litter by Caesarian section over the weekend. The staff at the hospital said it's unusual for larger dog breeds to have C-sections, and it took 11 of them to successfully deliver the puppies in a 40-minute operation. However, Cleo and all nineteen of her puppies were in good health after post-op and are awaiting their new homes. Cleo is owned by breeders who brought her along to the animal hospital after noticing she was extremely tired. They didn't realize she was pregnant much less going to give birth to 19 puppies. They wanted to know if that was some sort of world record but unfortunately, the record for puppies delivered at birth was 24 and that mom was a Mastiff named Tia.
