As the experienced South African veterinary doctor delivered the two puppies in 2016, he realized he had never seen anything quite like them before. But little did he know just how special the pair of pooches would turn out to be. And now animal lovers from all corners of the internet can’t get enough of the little fellers.
The story begins with a four-year-old female Irish wolfhound who was preparing to give birth in South Africa. She had already welcomed a litter of ten puppies in to the world once before. Unfortunately, due to complications during her labor, vets had had to deliver the final five babies from this first batch via a cesarian section.
So when their dog was due to deliver another litter, her owners wanted her to get the best care possible. As a result, they took their pregnant animal to renowned canine specialist Dr. Kurt de Cramer’s bustling practice, at Rant en Dal Animal Hospital in Mogale City in the north of the country.
