Exclamation Is this possible? Miracle puppies...

I was just browsing the net when I found this ad.... Miracle puppies FREE to good home (one per family please). 8 weeks old. 4 Males, 4 Females. Father is 180 pound English mastiff. Mother is 2 pound teacup chihuahua. These puppies have giant heads and tiny bodies. Very Loving animals. Grey and white.... So is it really possible to have a 180 pound father and a 2 pound mother? It sounds crazy!

Nope. For clarification, they won't let a 5 lb yorkie breed to a 3 pound female, but they'll do the other way around, simply because of mechanics and potential birthing issues.

I do know a female papillon that had a shar pei pup. The pup was almost as big as her in a week.And only one pup,she never could have fit more. They just thought she was getting bigger because if the food they switched her too

with a mastiff dam and a chi sire i'd have said unlikely, but possible. the other way around, hardly. first of all there are anatomical incompatibilities *cough* that wouldn't let such a big male impregnate a tiny female in a natural mating, and second it's unlikely that even if it did happen, the mother survived the pregnancy, let alone birth.

it's sad that people have to think up crap like that in order to find new homes for their puppies.

It's just a gimick to sell the pups.

I suppose it could be done with AI, but, why would someone go through the time and trouble and think of the possible genetic defects and hardship on the bitch. The Bullmastiff was created by crossbreeding Old English Mastiff's with Bulldog's a bit of a size difference.

It's amazing to think that within the dog family from the largest wolf to the 35lb border collie have the same size/shape pups. Wheather a Saint Bernard or a Coyote, pups average around 3 quarters of a pound (of course, there are always exceptions, and toy breeds do have smaller pups. But the difference in pup size are not as great as the differences in adult size. Often, differences in pup size are the result of how much energy the female can invest in the litter, rather than genetic differences.
This is a quote from biologist Raymond Coppinger who has been studying the Candid family for many years.

Or they used some frozen sperm

But either way, they are free, so it's not for money. Maybe it's just a scam like the golden retriever pups thing... 4 males and 4 females? It's a bit handy.

Bulldogs were a lot taller and bigger back when the bullmastiff was created. I just cant see a 180 pound father and a 2 pound mother.

No not possible. Well I mean its possible but the mother would NEVER survive. When my mom was a child they had a cocker spaniel. She was impregnated by a loose st bernard. She passed away.
