It all depends on the breed of the dog?

Don't know anything more than what happend with my gradn daughters boxer that just had puppies. The sonogram showed 4 puppies. After the fourth puppy was born, they thought it was all over, but then turned to look and there comes a fifth one popping out! Guess you never really know for sure until it happens!

I have a Japanese Spitz dong in home and she can give birth two 3 puppies once in a year. Some other kind of smaller dogs can give only 1 puppies at a time. But I have seen a bog giving birth to 8 puppies in my friends house. She couldn't feed all those puppies by herself so my friend has to feed the other puppies by herself.

It all depends on the breed of dog, smaller dogs normally have 2 - 5 puppies, large dogs can have as many as 11 in the litter.
