I'm amazed that they all survived! I'm so happy they did! http://www1.whdh.com/news/articles/local/BO93219/ ROWLEY, Mass. -- A local woman's pregnant dog had a double digit delivery. Indya Sheehan's two-year-old Golden Retriever Retro gave birth to 16 puppies at Slade Veterinary Hospital. A normal litter only has six to 10 puppies. Retro gave birth to the puppies a few weeks early by c-section. When the doctors came out to announce how many puppies Sheehan would be going home with, she was surprised.
