Cool Litter Size Poll

Hello! I am #13 on a wait list and I pass time by mildly obsessing about stuff.
I want to know how many puppies your golden has had!

for mine as best I recall and going back to the 70's
there were outliers but probably over 20 litters average of 8

Mine are at an average of seven. Number 14 probably means no puppy for you in the current litter especially if the breeder is planning to keep one which most responsible breeders do.

Mine average about 8, with a couple that were 1-3 and a couple that were 11-12. My friend Diane had one litter of 14, but that is a real rarity.

The breeders are not planning on keeping one from this litter but in a future litter for sure. 🙂

I volunteer with a service dog organization that uses its own breeding colony. Its Goldens average 8 per litter.

I am *hoping* for either a large litter, or for people in front of me on the list to not get one. 8 out of 13 want female and I want a male.

Not a breeder, but my first golden was from a litter of 2. My current pup is from a litter of 8 (frozen)!
