Katie & her 4 Puppies

i May 29th No Comments by

Katie2Katie is a sweet, 3 year old, wirehaired dachshund, that has had 3 liters of puppies in a year. She was surrendered to us on 5/25/13 & was supposed to be due to have 4 puppies in a few weeks. But, she had them on 5/29/13! She had 4 puppies; 3 males & 1 female. It was a tough delivery, because 3 of the puppies were breach. It took many hours of pushing and some help from foster mom, to get them all delivered. Mama and puppies are doing well so far.
