I just wondered, I know that Maltese can have anywhere from 1 to 5 puppies, with 5 being rare and 2-3 being the norm. But has anyone ever heard of 6 puppies in one litter? My Maltese Mariah had 6 in one litter this afternoon and I was floored!!!! Has anyone else ever heard of this before? If you don't believe it, see it for yourself.
Isn't this unusual??? :oops:

Thanks, She and the puppies are doing great! We go to the vet tomorrow for a check up and dew claw removal. They all seem happy and healthy. It really surprised me when six were born. Especially for her first litter! :roll:
