Hypothethetically lets say that the litter produced some dogs with missing teeths or testicle problems or other defects would you still use a pup from that litter which has no defects in a breeding program?

My dog Icon is linebred 2-4 on Hoky Va-Pe, whereas my (former) dog Dabear (Bear) is an outcross. But, according to the Embark DNA test, Icon has a COI of 27% and Bear has 35%. I find it curious, and am guessing that with Bear's predominantly Cz/DDR blood, the genetic diversity is less due to the geo-political restrictions on breeding in the past.
The linebreeding charts do not tell the whole story, but when combined with the COI for planning future litters, a breeder can examine the genetic potential in a 'paper breeding' before making any final choices. Just more information to enable a person to select the best match, along with the other considerations such as 'dog in front', compensating/complementing characteristics and observation/reports.
More tools = more knowledge
