A dog owner in Germany has 17 more mouths to feed.His four-year-old dog, Etana, gave birth to 17 Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies, and they all survived.

Her owner has to feed the puppies five times a day for the first four weeks because Etana doesn't have enough milk.

These puppies are Etana's second litter. She previously nurtured a litter of eight, but this litter is unusual in that all the puppies were born naturally with no need of a C-section and all of them survived.
