A Litter of Weimaraners

There were seven pups in Ferns last litter, it was a major task to take a photo of all seven pups together, the best we could manage is this photo of the six pup's. This photo was taken a split second before they all came running to see who dare enter their area.

The pups left the litter to go to their new homes at 8 weeks old, at this age they are becoming too rough for their mum, and she will have started spending less time with them.

The images opposite are kindly submitted by the pups new owners,


A Weimaraners gestation period
or pregnancy is usually 63 days
or 9 weeks after fertilisation,
give or take a couple of days.

The pups are born with their eyes closed, and depend heavily on their sense of smell touch and hearing, until their eyes open at 7 - 14 days.

Pedigree Weimaraner pups are born with bright blue eyes, which gradually change colour to amber by 6 - 9 months of age, be carefull of people advertising "blue eyed pups".
