BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A couple months ago the Fernandez family from southeast Bakersfield noticed their family Boxer, Sasha was pregnant. She is eleven months old.
They expected her due date to be in February, but she gave birth earlier...and that wasn't the only surprise.
Sasha gave birth to fourteen full-bred boxer puppies, nearly breaking a world record of fifteen boxer puppies born at one time. The average size litter for boxer dogs is 5-7 puppies.
One of the puppies did not make it after birth, and one is very sick but the family is trying its best to nurse it back to health.
"I had never seen so many puppies, I was so surprised," says Al Fernandez.
