Basset Hound Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 8/19/2004
I have heard of Back-breeding , But I do not truely understand it. I need to know if it is a good thing or a BAD thing to breed an offspring with it's sire??? I baby sit Bassets that I sold several years ago and I am worried that one of the females will go into Heat and I still own the Sire for these females. Jane Kilgore
