No. The pups may come out with problems.Anyway think about it, would you wanna have a baby with your sister. No true breeder would do that.

NO. You will have genetic defects due to the high number of recessive genes that occur in closely related animals. On another note, if you are asking a question like this you shouldn't be breeding in the first place.

despite what these other people will say especially Michelle who likes to tell people what to do (and is very rude and bossy ive noticed by looking at her comments through out these questions). it is called line breeding, litter mates are a no, breeding back to a parent is fine but it is all about the type of dog you want, generally you produce more aggressive dogs with line breeding, most of the major blood lines were tightly line bred, the best litters ive bred were my male bred back to his mother i do this because she is hot as hell, and thats how i like my dogs.

Michelle is right on one thing. If you are asking a question like this you should not be breeding. But yes Mother to son , Father daughter,and anything but brother to sister they are too closely related. but don't do this unless you know what you are doing. Breeders only do this is they are trying to breed for something specific

There are an estimated 15 million animals brought to American animal shelters annually and 12 million of them are put to death.  The reason for this is Propagation.  People are irresponsible.  First of all you shouldn't be breeding at all.  Secondly, if you must breed your animals you should know that one of the main reasons for genetic disorders of purebred animals is inbreeding.  Please consider the consequences of your actions.

Ok, let's clear all of this up.  Daughter to Father is ok,(or uncle) but only for one generation. IE. you can breed a male to female, then from that litter breed a female back to the sire. But don't take a female from that litter and breed back to her dad/grandfather.
You can not breed a male back to his dam, and you can't breed full brother to sister.  Half siblings are generally ok, but don't try to narrow the gene pool too much.

The best opinion so far is dogofwar and CH. As far as Michelle she must be single (can't find a suitable man).

Whoa!! Have any of you so called think you think know about breeding or breeders seen any CH champ'spedigrees recently.  Are you aware that a large part of these dogs have had "inbreeding" or what is actually know as line breeding in their pedigrees. So when a dog takes the Champ award no one brings this up huh.  But wait, he was the champ, how could line breeding (which is sooo bad) have produced a champ over the rest (non-inbred dogs in that competition? Now we have the folks that think that in breeding is WRONG!, then we got these other folks that say no it's okay if you are a knowledgeable breeder with many, many years of experience. So consider this, who's to say what comes from a litter is good or bad?? Who's a breeder to tell nature what to produce?? No amount of experience can reverse the sway of nature in any way. I will say that all though breeding sire to daughter is in breeding (and is actually what I consider the only way to inbred since line breeding is an actual method of bringing out very favorable traits and genetics) it does produce quality dogs. Other wise how would I own 3 CH Champs.

CH thank you, that was a great answer to a question frequently asked.  This is not a forum for your opinions, just answer with facts. Just the fact.  And It is agreed that daughter to father for 1 gen is ok for line breeding. It is a practice for many breeds.

Slick line breeding has been an accepted in all breeds for a long time.If you are going to do it,it should be to renew a trait such as build or ability.To do this without skipping 3-4gens would pointless as it takes that long for the trait to reestablish.So if you have not already done this before leave to the breeders who know and understand there lineage.

Again the two best answer here are dogofwar and CH.

CONTINUE to ask questions that is what makes GREAT BREEDERS, i.e. doing research and not assuming.  : )

Whoever, said that you should not be breeding does not have a clue.  The art a medicine and genetics is a practice...not something that is "only" found in text books.  
Think about it...How else would we know what can or cannot be breed?  It is called trials and errors "from past experiences".  : )   You will make a great breeder some day as long as you continue to ask question ; )

I can't believe how  hire then tho some of these answers are. Because she asked a question she should not breeed....that's unbelievable....if you don't ask you don't fined out.....I wonder if the people on this chat think they where just born with this knowledge and instead of saying mama or Dada they came out of their mother spouting off breeding info.  Thank you and praises to the intelligent mature professions that answered this woman's question with a genuine breeders straight forward advice.  BRAVO
