Miniature Schnauzer Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 2/5/2006
I am trying to find out at which point can puppies that are related thru the father can be breed together or not at all? I have a female that has the same dad as a friends male. there is a litter between when my female was born and when the male was born. Can this be done or will it harm my female or produce bad puppies? I love this breed and don't want to make a mistake with my first attempt to produce a good litter.

2/7/06 As long as these puppies have the same father, they should not be breed together. It doesn't matter how many litters apart they are, it doen't change the fact they have the same father. If you want to breed your female, you need to look elsewhere for a male that is no way related to her. Linda

3/2/06 to breed these 2 dogs would be considered inline breeding and some breeders do it....they take HUGE chances of having a physical defect or disease in the resulting puppies. It would be like humans having babies with their close relatives in short. some breeders feel it helps to bring out the better features of the breed but I DO NOT DO IT as ther are just TO MANY THINGS THAT CAN GO WAY WRONG.
