A sausage dog has given birth to huge and possible world record breaking litter of 11 puppies. 

Winnie, who is three years old, bore the adorable brood at home near Leicester last month.

Her owner Rayma Jones, 23, has revealed that she plans to sell the puppies but hasn't set a price yet.

Ms Jones thinks that Winnie's bumper litter may be a world record with the average number of puppies in a dachshund litter being between one and six, due to their small size.

The births comes after another dachshund, Cheesecake, made headline news for giving birth to a whopping 10 puppies in September 2021.

It's understood Guinness World Records does not keep records for individual dog breeds.

That being said, the largest litter of puppies ever is 24, all of whom were born on November 29, 2004 to Tia, a Neapolitan mastiff, in the UK.

Dog mum Rayma said: "I was amazed [by the litter]. I just kept counting them over and over.

"I was so surprised that I kept expecting her to pop out another one when I wasn't looking.

"She's such a great mum. I'm overwhelmed that she could have had a world record number of puppies.

"I looked online and I couldn't believe it.

"Winnie's a natural. She even has ten nipples so she can nearly feed them all at the same time - it's very sweet to watch.

"She never wants to leave them, and if she hears another dog she's right there next to them.

"She's the best mum ever."

Rayma's family brought her Winnie aged seven months, when her first owners were moving abroad.

Around three months ago, Rayma decided Winnie was ready to be a mum and she consequently found a stud dad.

A scan at 35 days of the nine-week pregnancy showed six puppies in Winnie's belly.

Five days before the pups were due, Winnie started digging and stamping about on her bed on September 5.

Rayma set an alarm to check her pooch in the middle of the night when she went to bed but then heard a squeaking noise coming from the spare room at around 11:30pm.

Over the course of the next few hours, Winnie birthed ten of the pups.

Rayma went to bed at 6:30am believing it was over but four hours later, she came back to check on her and counted again.

She said: "I thought 10 was amazing. She'd stopped panting and lay down feeding them. I really thought she'd finished.

"When I came back I counted them and there were 11.

"There was no mess, she'd just washed it and lined it up with the others. She's so clever."

Rayma added: “Winnie's colour is really rare for a wire-haired dachshund.

"She’s silver dapple and five of her puppies are completely silver with black spots.

“Another three are chocolate, and three are black and tan."

The puppies will be ready to leave mum after they turn eight weeks old.

And Rayma said: "I'll have to sell them, but I'm not sure of the price yet.

"I can't live with eleven puppies or I'll become the crazy dog lady!"
