Six. He originally started with 6, but then receives another 6 after the donations from his sisters. He then has 12. He then gives his dog 4 sweets leaving him with 8 - after eating 1/4 of these, he has 6 sweets left - like he started with!!!Hide Answer Show Answer

Good puzzle. I like the twist about feeding the sweets to the dog. There's a job there for a doggy dentist!
