Thats sad.

So was this the result of a male and female from the same litter breeding?

TBH I still dont fully understand the safetys and practices of inbreeding.
AFAIK in theory you can breed dogs of the same bloodline back together, but obviously not breed 2 pups from the same litter.

Can you breed 2 dogs of the same 2 parents of different litters?

Inbreeding does not create defects, abnormallies, and or poor health. The practice of inbreeding doesn't create traits, it only intensifies what is already present. So in Cuda's case the genetic code for the deformity was already there.

Why is it not allowed then?

Because of the intensification?

Who said inbreeding is not allowed?

Inbreeding and linebreeding are great tools for any breeding program...provided the breeder actually has some clue about what they are doing. I personally prefer dogs that are inbred and/or tightly linebred. The trick is to know when you need an outcross.

Do you know that the APBT is historically a very tightly linebred and inbred dog?

Well not not allowed but frowned upon. And maybe that was just me talking. Because I just read and it says that most show quality dogs are taken from within the line. I guess i just figured since it can intensify defects, dogs would be bred outside of the line whenever possible, but it doesn't appear to be the way it goes.

Oh ok. Didn't know that. I just wish all breeders were careful so we didn't have hip dysplasia running rampant through so many breeds. Not saying inbreeding caused it, but definitely isn't helping it.

And what if 2 dogs from the same line produce a dog like cuda? Would they stop using those dogs or continue to breed them?

And no thanks, I would not like to kiss my cousin. That's disgusting.

I also think it's quite comical that 19 states allow first cousin marriages but not gay marriage. Go ahead and marry your cousin but not your gay lover. *sigh*
