SANTA FE, Texas -- A Houston-area family is dealing with lots of extra love after their dog gave birth to an extra large litter of puppies.

The Hammond family’s Rottweiler, Terra, gave birth to 15 puppies.

The Hammonds believe it is a record for the largest litter of Rottweilers in the U.S.

The average litter size for Rottweilers is seven to ten puppies.

The world for the breed is 18 puppies, born to a Rottweiler in the United Kingdom back in 2009.

Terra’s purebred puppies will be for sale after they're weaned.
