A 8-month-old Tibetan mastiff named "Biyue" is seen with 12 of 14 puppies she gave birth on December 9 at the Jieyi Tibetan Mastiff kennel in Taoyuan township, Suining county, Jiangsu Province.

Tibetan mastiffs typically give birth to about eight pups. The kennel has found another dog to nurse five of the puppies.

"Biyue is really a hero mother," said a kennel employee who visited 30 Tibetan mastiff kennels to find a suitable mate for her, and finally found one named "Juwuba" (giant) in Tianjin Municipality.
