    I'm only concerned Liss as you seem to have plunged into this with so little preparation, so there is so many unknowns in the situation. Makes it hard to advise.

    There's no point being judgemental here. I'm just trying to think of any other little things that you might need to know to make the next few weeks a bit easier.

    But really I don't mind our dog is going to be ok and all pups are alive and feeding
    I feel we have done all we can for her and had already made the choice to spay her after the 3rd pup toke so long to b born...
    Am so glad the surgery was successful. It's going to be very full on looking after 12 pups.. Will the surgery affect Tips milk at all ?

    I don't think so as the vet said she's feeding pups herself but will be sure to ask him when we go pick her up at 6 tonight

    Where abouts are you situated Liss? If you are close by I am happy to help you out with feeding and such.
    Also well done to Mum! 12 pups is a big litter, especially as she looks quite small in the photos. I tend to agree that she may be a wiry coat JRT more than a wolfhound.
    Hope the pups and Mum continue to thrive
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    We are in Brisbane, thanks for the offer tho
    I think the pics make her look smaller than she is.... As she normally weighs about 34kgs...

    See how she goes with the pups on her own. The challenge with a litter like this is there are more pups than boobs. If they are not all getting a turn or you and or mum are struggling let me know. I have a few tips and tricks for managing big litters, getting everyone fed and making sure milk supply is right up there.

    Plus there are a whole lot of wrigglers for her to try and keep an eye on so be careful she doesn't misjudge her movements and squash any. It can happen so fast.

    Wolfhounds are well over 70kg, males often closer to 90. So mum is unlikely to have much if any in there.

    Plus if the male was significantly bigger than her the pups might grow very fast and really take it out of her. Again let me know and I'll pass on some food boosting ideas that won't break the bank (too much...).
