However a standard Poodle from British Columbia named Charlie set a new whelping record for the breed, sixteen puppies!!
Charlie’s owner, Deborah Bridgman, a dog breeder and pet shop owner, was up for 23 hours straight helping to deliver the puppies, ten females and six males.
Charlie is named for Charlie’s Angels and her mate, Magnum is named for…well, that P.I. guy. Ms. Bridgman had not planned to breed them but "Magnum broke through two fences to get at her." Trying to keep an intact dog away from a bitch in heat is doomsday for any structure standing between them.
The largest litter of puppies ever, according to Guinness World Records is 24 by Tia, a Neopolitan Mastiff, owned by Damian Ward and Anne Kellegher of Manea, Cambridgeshire, UK.
