Sassy the Doberman has given birth to 18 puppies, equaling the Australian record for most puppies born in a single litter.

The Perth dog needed ten veterinary staff and a cesarean operation to help her along when an ultrasound scan revealed the unborn puppies were distressed.

The Doberman gave birth to a healthy litter with the help of staff from West Coast Veterinary Clinic in Forrestdale on Monday.

‘The surgery took about an hour and it was quite in depth – I lost count after about eight or nine puppies so just carried on,’ West Coast Vet Aaron Raney told Nine news.

Some of the litter initially wasn’t breathing but all the puppies ended up surviving.

The Vets at West Coast Veterinary Clinic are helping Sassy feed her new litter.
