A sausage dog has given birth to a staggering ten puppies.

Two-year-old Cheesecake, the dachshund, shocked her owner Stacey Whiteley, 42, as she gave birth to almost double the average amount of puppies.

Mother-of-two Stacey, who works as a planner in the water industry, expected eight puppies but they just ‘kept on coming’.

Stacey, from Lincoln, decided to name all of the puppies after cheeses.

She said: ‘Sausage dogs usually have a litter of six. I knew Cheesecake was going to have a couple more because of the scan she had, but I didn’t think ten was possible.

‘She gave birth to six within an hour then slowed down as she was tired. I am an experienced mother so I could relate, I felt her uterus to see if there is any more.

‘She wasn’t textbook at all. I gave her food and then within five minutes she gave birth to the 10th. I was gobsmacked.’

The litter arrived on September 8.

There were five boys named Edame, Manchego, Cheddar, Blue and Wensleydale. The girls were called Philly, Brie, Feta, Pepper and Babybel.

They moved to their fur-ever home in November apart from Babybel who stayed with the family.

Stacey said: ‘My house was in chaos for a couple of months. I decided to elevate some of the pressure and bottle feed the puppies at the start so Cheesecake could have a break.

‘She is such a great mum, she was so attentive and gentle. It was a whirlwind looking after them all and I was sad to see them go. Babybel fitted in with my other dogs so we decided to keep her.’
