Can you mate a dog and its offspring?

3/25/07 I realize it has been quite sometime since your post but noticed you had no replies. A dog will mate with anyone you allow it to. However, it is not a good idea to breed with offspring (inbreeding) This can cause many problems from unbalanced organs, duplicate organs, 2 sets of teeth, the list goes on and on. It takes a very experienced breeder who has throughly studied genetics to even attempt this successfully. Honestly, before I choose a puppy that is one thing I check for on the pedigree. I make sure there was no inbreeding. Melissa
