Well our pup came from a litter of 6 although the breeder reckoned it was a small litter but produced large pups.

I think it differs with breeds.

I think it varies from breed to breed really.

My breed usually have 4-6 puppies in a litter!

It can range from 1 or 2 for tiny dogs to 14 or more for big dogs.

The average litter size between all breeds of dogs is 4 or 5

That would really depend on the breed. In my breed the average is between 6 and 8 but they have been known to have as few as 2 and as many as 12.

This would have been my answer too. Breed & size definitely plays a roll in the averages.
