What A Lotta Rottas


Weird and Wonderful

A Rottwieler surprised her owners when she gave birth to 15 puppies.

Owner Eleanor Usher, from Telford, Shropshire, was expecting her pet, Jessie, to have five babies, but ended up with one of the biggest litters ever born in Britain.

The puppies have been sheltered in a makeshift bed made by her carpenter husband, Ian, and are to be sold.

Eleanor told the Metro: “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?”

Eleanor has called the smallest puppy Daisy and the biggest Walter, the others do not have names, as they look too similar at the moment.
