Pregnant dog, Lilica from Brazil, posed for some beautiful maternity photo’s just one day before giving birth to five healthy puppies! Four boys and one girl. All puppies have since been adopted by family and friends of the glowing mums owner!

Sporting a fuschia flower necklace (complete with rhinestones!), the happy mum to be posed comfortably in front of the camera showing off her heavily pregnant belly.

Photographer Ana Paula Grillo has had experience shooting various animals and kids etc. but this was a first for a pet maternity photo opportunity. After seeing some online with humans, Ana thought her neighbours pregnant pinscher mix would be the most perfect subject for her next selection of photos. She told Mashable “I saw her big belly and I thought, this is it.”

Lillica was such a natural, Ana decided not to edit the photos apart from a little colour correction.

Congratulations to the new mum on her healthy little pack!
