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