Dog in Germany gives birth to 17 Rhodesian Ridgeback pups. A fatigued dog in Germany is exhausted after giving birth to 17 pups. Owner Ramona Wegemann barely slept for more than a couple of minutes make sure all of the purebred Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies would survive.

Wegemann's dog Etana gave birth to eight female and nine male puppies on Sept. 28 in Ebereschenhof, which is near Berlin. At least five times a day, Wegemann gave the dogs a bottle with special milk because their mother's nipples could have never coped with the demand. In addition, the pups wanted to be entertained, she said.

"The birth of the puppies was very special. All puppies were born naturally, no cesarean was necessary," she said. It took Etana a full 26 hours to give birth to all of the puppies -- and Wegemann was as baffled as amazed. But caring for 17 puppies turned out to be a full-time job.

Their lives have been turned upside down by the puppies, and their living room is now occupied by a giant box that houses the puppies. The females are called Bahati, Binta, Bahya, Bashima, Batouuli, Binki, Bora and Bisa. The male ones are Baakir, Banjoku, Belay, Bruk, Bundu, Bayo, Bukekayo, Biton and Bulus.
