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.

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.

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.
