Default how many puppies is normal?

Both my dogs got pregnant a while back. My golden retriever had 5 puppies but my other (mixedbreed) hat 13 (only 11 made it) So we had 16 little puppies running around the house. It was a nice experience, but we are all glad its over

So, about the 13 puppies: is this normal, we thought its an awfull lot of babies for one mom

Anything is normal in the dog world. Dogos and or the mastiff breeds have been known to have as many as 18 dogs. It all depends on how many were fertilized.

Question for you. Why did you breed the dogs in the first place?

Im assuming this is a accident i hope you spayed them ?

My breed has 5-10 pups and some times you get still borns

I had one dog with 6 pups and the other with 8 the 6 pups were easy on the mom the 8 i needed to double up on the food for her it drained her took 6 months to recover.

All my pups were purebred spoken for before bred dogs.
I see no reason to have mutts when so many mutts are dying each day..

So i hope you spayed and neutered the mutts before they left for new homes...

dogs can have 2 they can have 15, they can have them all by the same sire or different ones. Depending on what sized dog you have, i'd say anywhere from 6-12 is about normal for a medium to larger sized dog.
