6/28/07 yes a father can be bred back to his daughter (doxies) but a son CANNOT be bred back to his mom That is inline breeding and you need to know what you are doing or you may have trouble Billy
6/29/07 What?!? How is a son to his dam "inline" breeding (that's a new one!) and a daughter to her sire isn't? Both are inbreeding and *everything* is dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. Linebreeding is inbreeding to some extent. If this bitch is linebred on her sire, breeding her back to him is likely not a good idea. The more you inbreed a line, the more likely you are to come up with recessives, that may or may not be desirable. It's my opinion that if you need to ask questions such as these on this forum, you should be doing LOTS more research prior to breeding anything. JMO Dawn-Renée

7/23/07 That is a new term for me… “In-Line Breeding”. I think you are referring to “Line Breeding” vs. “In Breeding” I would recommend a book by Carmelo Battaglia "Breeding Better Dogs"... Linebreeding (very common in WELL BRED DOGS) and sometimes rarely Linebreeding are advised ONLY by knowledgeable and well advised breeders who can properly evaluate both the weak and strong points structurally, in both the sire and dam, but also in the lineage or research pedigree for many generations. It IS common for very well bred, successful show dogs to be bred in this manner - the breeders who do this are most likely managing their dogs appropriately and providing the proper genetic health screenings... Both Linebreeding and Inbreeding will bring out both the positive and negative attributes in one litter. You have to know what you are looking at. It also depends on how closely you are breeding your line… Rachelle
