Pretty Girl, the Bernese mountain dog that had been nursing nine puppies of her own and 11 from a golden retriever that died in surgery, is back down to tending to her own litter after the Victoria Humane Society found two more nursing mothers to help with the load.

Caring for 20 puppies at once was quite a job for Pretty Girl.

“We had the golden retrievers at one end and the Bernese mountain dog puppies,” said society executive director Penny Stone. “She would go between them, she would feed them, she’s a very good mom. It obviously wasn’t sustainable.”
