A Wyoming family's Leonberger dog has given birth to a litter of 18 puppies.

Ariel, a large Leonberger dog owned by Mary Ann Ruggiero-Smith, of Powell, gave birth to the puppies on Oct. 27.

After the pups were born, family of Ruggiero-Smith and Paul Smith pitched in to help feed the lot puppy formula.

By the time the puppies were a week and a half old, Ariel was producing enough milk to feed them with little or no help.
