Dachshund named Cheesecake gave birth to 10 puppies

The dachshund is a short-legged and long-bodied dog.

Small but full of character and fun, these sausage dogs are loved by their owners.

And their small stature means that females can only have between one and six puppies per litter.

However, one hot dog defied the average by giving birth to an incredible 10 puppies.

Two-year-old Cheesecake shocked her owner Stacey Whiteley, 42, when she gave birth to almost twice the average number of puppies for the breed.

The mother of two, who works in the water industry as a planner, expected a total of eight puppies but they just ‘keep coming’.

Stacey explains: “Sausage dogs usually have six.

‘I knew Cheesecake would have a few more because of the results of her scan, but I don’t think there could be 10.

‘She gave birth to six within an hour then slowed down due to fatigue.

‘I’m an experienced mother so I can have sex, I feel her uterus to see if there’s any more. She is absolutely not a textbook case. I fed her and then within five minutes she gave birth to her 10th child.

‘I was hunted down.’

The litters arrived on September 8, and Stacey named them all after different cheeses.

The boys were named Edame, Manchego, Cheddar, Blue and Wensleydale. While the five girls are named Philly, Brie, Feta, Pepper and Babybel.

Every puppy has moved into their permanent home over the course of November – with the exception of Babybel who stays with the family.

Stacey recalls: “My house fell into chaos for several months.

‘I decided to increase some pressure and bottle-feed the puppy from the start so Cheesecake could rest.

‘She is a wonderful mother, she is so caring and gentle. It’s been a whirlwind hunting them all and I’m sad to see them go.

“But Babybel got along well with my other dogs so we decided to keep him.”
