“We also work daily with high-kill shelters in the Kansas City area to pull ‘unwanted’ pets to safety,” it explained. But when UPRA rescued LOL, they couldn’t help but notice she was pregnant. Furthermore, she could give birth at any time.
However, LOL was lucky, and UPRA found her a foster family pretty quickly. Josie Brown happily took the chihuahua and her future puppies into her home. Despite her late stage in pregnancy, it wasn’t until five days later that LOL went into labor.
Unsurprisingly, the smaller the dog breed is, the fewer puppies they tend to have in a litter. Consequently, smaller chihuahua breeds birth anywhere from one to three babies per pregnancy. Even the bigger chihuahua breeds don’t generally have more than five puppers, though.
