A three-year-old English Mastiff in Mississippi just became a first time mother to 18 puppies.

The Suggs family are still marveling at their dog, "Kimber's" large litter, they were only anticipating 10 puppies.

It was believed that " Kimber' couldn't even get pregnant, but, she proved the vet wrong in that regard too.

She and the Suggs other mastiff, "Magnum," obviously found a love connection.

Then last week, after an emergency c-section, "Kimber" delivered 18 healthy puppies, quite an accomplishment.

While the Suggs were a bit shocked, who could resist these cute, furry babies all piled up on each other?

The entire family is busy feeding and caring for the pups until "Kimber" recovers from her c-section.

It won't be long until they're big and strong just like their mother who will weigh in at about 150 pounds post delivery.
