A family have found themselves caring for 15 puppies after their pet Dalmatian had an extra large litter.

Owner Kay Sullivan said no-one expected two-and-half-year old Pebbles to have the same number of pups as the first litter in the film 101 Dalmatians.

She said: "We were expecting an average litter of about seven or eight. We weren't expecting 15. It's a bit much."
