Dog Trainer/K9 Lover: How many German Shepherd puppies will be born if this is the first litter?
I am just wondering about how many German Shepherd puppies will be born if this is the first litter? I know it will cost a lot of money to raise a litter. Her mother had 5 German Shepherd puppies. All Alive & Healthy. Anyways, some people are saying that the first litter will be small like about 3-6. I am not too sure about this. Any Help will be good. Thanks in advance.

    It depends on the progency of the mother and other generations it can be between 3-10 puppies.

    My two year old Sheperd just had 9 a month and a half ago. All survived great dogs/puppies.

    As most here already advised you to be absolute sure you could have the Vet do an ultrasound. The general rule of dumb is that a dog has normally a litter between 3-6 that are capable of surveiving. In rare instances it is possible that a dog has only one or even up to 10. But to take all the guesswork out let the Vet do an ultra sound and you be able to know exactly how many she is expecting. Good luck and all the best for you and your litter. (yea, it is expensive, but it is also a wonderful experience to see the little ones grow up. It is more than worth it to allow your dog to have a litter).
