Hi Everyone,
I am looking at a dog to purchase and just noticed that his sire is the son of his mother. This seems a little to close of a breeding to me. What do you guys think? Is this a common practice? If you PM me I will give you the dogs name so you can look at his pedigree.

I would pay pet fee for the dog maybe. Just as a companion. Crap happens these days ... I would have to have a serious explanation what is being accompished by this!

Unless this breeding was done by someone who has many generations of  intimate knowledge of the dogs involved, I would not consider it.

There might be dentition problems with this sort of mating . . .

Sorry, I couldn't resist!

Some lines are healthy enough to get away with it, but if it's a breeding with no health/temperament checks, and the dogs are mediocre, than they could be loaded with genetic defects.

The person either studied their butt off to learn all the dogs faults & weaknesses in the background, which you would need only study a few generations cause of the close breeding, or the person is counting on "The luck of the draw!"

NOT common and definately something to be "aware" of - and find out the reason for this close inbreeding.  Better be a really good reason IMO.

 I do not think you should have posted this if you are not gonna be upfront with the pedigree..We are all adults here..Evidentually  you know it is a  DANGEROUS situation or you would not ask.

Use your OWN intuition.

OR share on the board the pedigree.. I do not wish to pm something and  she said he said..PUT it out in the open...IT is not a disgrace...GOOD  breeding has been done this way..Just DEPENDS....not the diaper......

JUST DEPENDS on what GSD it is and what lineage it comes from...NO ONE CAN ANSWER a BLANKET  QUESTION on this one.
