Can she survive outside on ten acres in the woods?

Someone dropped off a stray dog back in October...well she's stayed here on our homestead in the country. We don't have any dogs and our children love her.
Turns out she was pregnant and had 5 pups on thanksgiving. now we need to give them up. I do not allow her to come in the house so should I also find a place for her to live other than here?
Can she survive outside on ten acres in the woods? I have a dog house for her but right now since the pups are here and she's feeding them they are in the garage but as soon as they are weened they are outside again??
Please advise us what would be best.

Give them all a good home

No, they cannot survive in the woods. Even in our suburban subdivision which has many small sections of woods, there are occasionally coyotes, etc. I would never even think of taking our dog out without being very close to her.

Since you don't allow dogs in the house, please take them all to a no kill shelter that will find them good homes where they will be loved, welcomed into the home, and well taken care of. They look like sweet dogs and should be given the opportunity to have a forever home.
