A recent article on TODAY talks about a dog breeder in Germany who found herself with a total of 27 puppies all in one week!

Beatrice Oswald is a Mastiff breeder based in Aken, Germany. Her 2-year-old dog Elfi birthed a litter of 11 puppies first, and then three days later, her 3-year-old dog Anny had 16 puppies!

The mother dogs have not been able to provide enough milk for all of the puppies so Oswald and her friends have been bottle-feeding the hungry babies. She plans to keep them until they are old enough to be sold.

    That is just crazy. How in the world could you care for that many puppies? I hope they are bringing in reinforcements!
