Not a good idea.  You may end up with puppies that have severe temperament problems.  

Since we're on the topic of breeding, have you done all the necessary health testing?  I don't know what breed you are breeding.  But I hope you are breeding to further the breed. And belong to a breed club in your area?

Why is Fluffy not spayed?  Why haven't you neutered Fluffy'soffspring?  You wouldn't be in this situation had they been altered.
Close breedings like that are asking for trouble.  As a pet owner you need to be much more responsible than this.  This is the reason the animal shelters are full of unwanted dogs.  And the reason many more are euthenized. Very Sad.  Please be more responsible.

PLEASE be more responsible then to let that happen.  I adopted a 6 month old dog from a family that had her and her brother.  I found out about a month later that she was going to have pups.  The pups where born with sever liver disease.  They all died because they could not digest solid food once weened from the mother. I could do nothing to help them but have then put down.  If you can't be more responsible don't own pets.  Please spay or neuter your pets.

ccm, don't worry, the breed takes care of it's self.  You might have a miscairage, or still births, but just remember whatever happens is natures way. I'm a vet in Utah and we see this happening. Don't worry about Jen's over obsessiveness about neutering. Some people see it as an unnatural act messing with what God gave us. But as far as your question, the answer isn't easy.  Your puppies could be very healthy and live long or they could have temperment problems.  Just watch mom and make sure she stays healthy during delivery. Good luck!

How in the World do you think we ended up with different dog breeds to begin with ??? "Cross Breeding" only ? No, you have to "inter-breed" to come up with what you want. Chances are your "inbred dog" (purebred) has a few mutated genes to begin with and depending on what they are these with be passed on as “dormant genes” or might even come out in the off spring. It is not “a matter of fact” that your puppy will end up with “severe temperament problems”  Unless your original dog has the problem, then “back breeding” will double the chances of “severe temperament problems”  Basically  “any problems you have with the “original dog” could be enhanced but then any good qualities that are present could be better.
If your Dog has a wonderful temperament then your chance of having a dog with a wonderful temperament are higher as those genes would be more pronounced. The things you really have to watch out for are all the unseen things like livers, hearts, lungs.  
So lets not get so “Oh my God about “back breeding”. Nothing will happen if you "back breed" with a brother or father or mother.  That’s how breeds were made to begin with.

I volunteer at our Humane Society and it is sad we have wonderful dogs who are there because of  irresponsable breeding like your self. Neuter your dog is safer and heathier.

Breeding related dogs is the same and related humans breeding, if either dog has a serious, or somewhat dibilitating healt problem I would not sugest breeding, that would be cruel. If both have the same type of health problems (if they have any) THEN DEFFINANTLY DON'T! But if there healthy and you want to, go a head.

When you breed close relatives you double up on all genetic faults, like blindness, hip problems, heart, thyroid, and  much more.
  Unless you know all the genetic information on the dogs four or five generations back, and they ARE ALL POSITIVELY GREAT. NEVER INBREED.

Line breeding or "breeding back" is not always a bad thing in animals as long as you know what negative traits your dogs have and are sure that they will not be doubled by that line breeding.  It is important to know the breed standard or the qualities you are looking for in your puppies.  It should not be a random decision, but one done with careful consideration.
