Annie the Golden Retriever Having Puppies

"My Golden Retriever Annie had puppies when she was three years old. She is named after Little Ann in "Where the Red Fern Grows." She had ten males and one female. The female was stillborn."

This is Annie whelping her Golden Retriever puppies.

Annie takes to her puppies right away with a good motherly instinct.

"Annie took care of the puppies so well I didn't really have to do much until they got a little older. Annie only had one litter and then we spayed her. We figured one was enough for her."

Although this section is based on a whelping of an English Mastiff, it also contains good general whelping information on large-breed dogs. You can find more whelping information in the links above. The links below tell the story of Sassy, an English Mastiff. Sassy has a wonderful temperament. She loves humans and adores children. An all-around mild mannered, wonderful Mastiff, Sassy, however, is not the best mother toward her puppies. She is not rejecting them; she will nurse them when a human places them on her to feed, however she will not clean the pups or pay any attention to them. It is as if they are not her puppies. This litter is getting mom’s milk with major human interaction, manually giving each and every pup what they need. In return, the pups will be super socialized and will make remarkable pets, however the work involved is astounding. It takes one dedicated breeder to keep this situation healthy. Thankfully this litter has just that. Read the links below to get the full story. The pages within include a wealth of information that everyone can appreciate and benefit from.
