Update:  12 October 2016. Pups are 2 weeks old! (All pups booked. There is one female booking that might be cancelled as the buyer has not paid a deposit – updates to follow)

Cleo and all her pups are doing very well. She had a mild case of mastitis this week (not uncommon with large litters) which is under control (Mastitis is a bacterial infection of one or more lactating / milk producing glands in the breasts).

There are no runts in this litter – spectacular for such a large and busy litter! She is a fine girl and an excellent  mother since she takes care to continuously nurse her pups and always avoids stepping on them when moving into and from the den. The pups’ eyes and ears will open soon. We will start to measure and track them individually from week 4 once their uniqueness shows more clearly. There are both light and dark males and females.

The pups have been born. Cleo successfully delivered a large litter of 11 pups (7 females and 4 males). She is doing very well. We are blessed and happy to say that all pups are of expected size and health. There are dark and light boys and girls and by week 4 we will have a better idea of the split between fawn and red pups.cleoandnewbornpupssargethrust
