The average is around 6-8, but it does vary considerably.  The largest litter I've known of personally is 13, and I believe they all survived (the smallest, of course, is the singleton litter of one).

Cactus came from a litter of 12.  One died because of deformities at birth- his back legs were not fully formed.  Another died because she was born out side and wasn't found in time.  The other nine, including two whites, are all doing wonderfully- except that Cactus has seizures.

My old boxer Ruby had 8 puppies in each of her 2 litters, 1 passed during the first night in both litters.
