Default Are 12 pupps too many?

I'm looking to buy a puppy from a breeder whose litter just had 13 puppies (9 males and 3 females). Is it normal to have that many puppies in one litter?

It's a large litter but there is no reason for that to detract from the pups. Concentrate more on the health and temperament.

My Kayos is one of 13. Her breeder said she was stunned! She likes liitters of 8 or so. But there are 12 pups and if mom is caring for all of them they should all be fine.

My Yoko was one of 12. Fantastic dog. Number of pups is not the question. The quality of the pups is.
