Rottweiler gives birth to one of Britain’s biggest ever litters after having 15 puppies !!!

A Rottweiler dog has given birth to one of Great Britan's biggest litters ever after having 15 puppies.

Owner Eleanor Usher, 47, had only expected two-year-old pet Jessie to have five pups, but was left very surprised when the dog's litter was three times bigger.
This is now Britain's second largest litter of puppies, after another Rottweiler had 18 puppies, a couple of years ago.

Mrs Usher said: 'They are absolutely adorable, it makes me smile every time that I see them.

'They've all grown a bit, and are starting to get their own distinctive personalities.

'The problem with Rottweiler pups is that they fight with one another - so there is lots of growling and noise down there during the day.

'They are starting to get their vocal cords, so the house has been a very noisy place over the last few weeks.

'Ian (Mrs Usher's husband) and I have a rota drawn up to feed the pups throughout the day and night. It's exhausting but worth it to see them.

'It's going to be very hard to see them go, but each of them will be going to a really good home.

'After the sixth puppy, I was saying: 'That's a good girl, you can stop now, you don't have to do anymore'.

'But they just kept coming and coming. We didn't even need to do anything to assist her, they were all just coming out without any need for help. She made it so easy for us.
'We just thought: 'Oh my god, when is she going to stop?'

'After the 11th, we started to look into records, and discovered that the highest in the UK was 18, and the second highest was 13.

'The way that Jessie was going, and the speed at which they were coming out of her, we were fearing that it would get as high as 20. Thankfully it was all over by about 8.00am.

'The 15th was smaller than the rest of them, and had a white mouth instead of a pink one, which was bit out of the ordinary.

'We were a bit worried about her and kept a close eye on her, but she is fine now.
'I bought a load of formula so that I could feed the puppies, but I've wasn't able too for the first few weeks because Jessie was so protective of them. She's got that natural motherly instinct.'/
