Owners of pregnant Miley the Dalmatian were in for a shock then she gave birth to a record breaking 18 pup litter, after veterinarians told them they should expect just three! This is the biggest litter in Australian history and equal to the current world record.

Both mom and dad are first time parents to the 12 girls and 6 boys and now draw constant comparisons with the famed Disney flick. Usually Dalmatians have eight or ten puppies in a litter and first time moms have even less, but breeder Cecilia Langton-Bunker said she was expecting 15 or 16 puppies, despite what the vet said. Since Pongo and Perdita in 101 Dalmatians had a 15 pup litter, they just got beat by Miley and her beau Astro.

Coincidentally born on May 18, after 13 hours of labor, both mom and puppies are doing splendidly and the pups are already thriving.

The record breaking Dalmatian litter has been officially certified by the Australian National Kennel Council as the largest in Australian history, which counts more than 40,000 Dalmatian births. Since there are 18 of them and they all still look pretty much the same, 18 collars were tailor made for the humongous litter of spotties, who previously sported colored spots on their necks to distinguish them.
