A Great Dane in York Haven has given birth to 19 puppies. A normal litter has eight. Their owner is Brandon Terry, and he's been having to pick up a lot of puppy poop. "They are very, very needy. The second I walk into the stall area they see my feet and just come running," said Terry.
Last month he took the mother, named Snowy, to the veterinarian and got some unexpected news. "As soon as they did an X-ray they saw 15 little spines," said Terry. A week later Terry heard screams in his backyard and found one of the puppies. Snowy was in labor and when all was said and done she gave birth to the grand total of 19. Terry said Snowy has been exhausted since having the puppies, and she doesn't have enough milk for all the puppies. That's why Terry's family has been giving them a supplemental formula to make sure they're all fed well.
Terry's daughter Kaitlyn also has been babysitting. However it can also be a distraction. "My daughter doesn't like going to school because she wants to stay home with the puppies," said Terry. He plans to sell them. He has found homes for two of the puppies. If any aren't sold he plans to keep them and is already renovating his garage to make room.
