how long is the jestation period for dogs
Dogs bear their litters roughly 56 to 72 days after fertilization, although the length of gestation can vary. An average litter consists of about six puppies, though this number may vary widely based on the breed of dog. Toy dogs generally produce from one to four puppies in each litter, while much larger breeds may average as many as 12 pups in each litter.
The average gestation is 58-63 days, from the first tie! Count 63 days from the first tie, and that will give you an idea, on when to expect the puppies.

63 day's. total of pups vary. I raise Am. Pitbull and her first litter was 15
