Sarchie mother, Kiri, was matched with Lex during July 2008. Her entire litter was born between 6pm Friday 26th September 2008 and 2.30am Saturday 27th September 2008 at the home of Eve, who is an excellent breeder in Norfolk, specialising solely in Weimaraner dogs.

This was the 3rd and final litter that Kiri (Sarchie’s mother), known as the ‘S’ litter. Sarchie has 6 brothers and a sister. All were in fabulous shape and weighed between 12 and 14 ozs at birth.

Eve has an excellent web site devoted to her dogs, including an area devoted entirely to the birth of the litter. You can read and see the full story of their devolopment here:
