A Red Setter dog has given birth to 15 pups in her Galashiels home on Mother's Day.

Two year-old Poppy delivered eight boys and 7 girls and it was her first litter, and last.

The average size litter for the gun dog breed is nine puppies but they kept on coming.

The litter was two short of the Scottish record.

“We’ve already been contacted by people via Facebook wanting to buy the pups, which doesn’t surprise me as Red Setters are super friendly dogs.”
