Great Dane gives birth to 19 puppies

Velma, a 4-year-old Great Dane, shocked her owners when she gave birth to 19 black and white puppies on Dec. 5.

Velma’s owners, Josh and Terri, said the puppies “just kept coming” for 19 hours. The litter was nearly twice as large as they were expecting it to be.

Luckily, all of the adorable puppies are healthy as they ring in the New Year. — See more photos at The Little Things
