Dog Has 21 Puppies It took more than 20 hours labor

An American Bulldog named Daisy Mae must be dizzy after giving birth to 21 pups, nearly double the average litter size which is 11.
"Every couple hours one would come out. I kept thinking 'Well, that has to be the end,'" said owner Scott Ballard. The Ballards live on a 28-acre farm near Columbia, Ill., and bred Daisy Mae with Groucho, a friend's registered bulldog.
Four of the puppies didn’t make it through the labor that lasted more than 20 hours, but the 17 that survived just celebrated their 6-week birthday and can be adopted. But don't pack up the car just yet -- they're all spoken for.
