It's not 101 Dalmatians, but for the Sullivans of Garnant, Wales, it certainly feels like it!

The family's dog, Pebbles, gave birth to a whopping 15 puppies recently.

"We were expecting an average litter of about seven or eight. We weren't expecting 15," Kay Sullivan told BBC News. "It's a bit much."

The Sullivans thought mating their Dalmatian with another pup would take everyone's minds off the recent passing of their pet lamb and another family dog. Exhausted Pebbles most certainly has other matters on her mind now.

"She's great with them. She goes in to just feed them and other than that, she keeps away from them," said Sullivan, a mother of four.

Two of the Dalmatian puppies have already been adopted and the Sullivans plan on keeping one for their 3-year-old daughter Cerys.

"We're not keeping 15," she said. "We don't want 15 dogs running around."
