A dog dog lover was shocked when he discovered that the German dog she adopted had 70 teeth.

Aurora Rutledge (31) rescued one-year-old Loki in March of this year and brought him to a vet for a routine checkup.

When the landlady looked into the dog's mouth, she noticed that he had 28 teeth more than the average dog – and he quickly took 21 out.

After $ 770 in extractions, Loki recovers at home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and follows a strict softfood diet to help heal his mouth.

Aurora, a bar owner, said: & I had taken him to our local vet as a routine check as he was a new rescue and told the doctor that the people we got from him mentioned that he may have had teeth. detained.

& # 39; Loki is a giant puppy and is very energetic – so I had not had the chance to look into his mouth myself.

& # 39; When we had the chance to take a look, we could see that he had more than normal, but we didn't think he would have 70 teeth!

& # 39; The veterinarian performed dental extraction on Loki and removed 21 of his teeth, leaving him with 49 – still seven more than average.

& # 39; It was something that shocked us enormously, but we are just so happy that he is home and is now recovering. & # 39;

Aurora, a three-year-old mother, explains that Loki suffered from hyperdontia – but vets were shocked to see it that way.

She said: & # 39; Hyperdontia is a genetic anomaly, but it is never considered as extreme as this.

& # 39; The vet cannot exclude that he has this due to poor breeding – so the rescue we got from him is working hard to track down his breeder to hopefully stop something as painful as this happens again.

& # 39; The night and the morning after the operation were rough – he was bleeding all over my couches, carpet, kitchen, dog bed, me.

& # 39; We had to give him a medicine to make him sleepy, so he wouldn't be around.

& # 39; At the moment he is still on soft food and is slowly transferring it to more solid chunks.

& # 39; After this, as far as dental goes, hopefully after everything is healed, he will not even notice that he had so many extra teeth!

Operation: Loki had 21 of his teeth removed surgically on May 20, costing his owner $ 770

& # 39; We will ensure that he has his routine dental checkups, especially since they left seven teeth behind. & # 39;

Despite the pooch that incurs a $ 770 medical bill and bleeds throughout the house, Aurora explains that it is totally worth it – but warns others about similar rescue options.

She said: & # 39; Saving dogs is not always easy – you often run into huge vet bills, but the animals are so worth it.

& # 39; Loki just settles in, and you know he feels safe, you can't appreciate that.

& # 39; We want bad breeding practices to be stopped.

& # 39; Until they are, adopting is the only way to reach our dogs. & # 39;
