so i found a breeder is retired, but he has two goldens that are from the same litter. Well they had an oops, and had 10 puppies. the parents are from really good background, and the breeder had always kept bloodlines very far apart.He has info on the mother, grandma, and great grandma of the parents, and everything shows that the bloodline is solid and has never had any kind of same bloodline breeding. This is the first time its even been close in the bloodline. the last male he has is prime! and its going for cheap. What should I do? is this one time crossing an issue? I heard sometimes breeders will breed a sibling to standardize the bloodline. There are no signs of health issues across the bloodline at all. What do you think?

If there are no health problems from the start I would say that the pups should stay healthy. If they are in the price range you are looking for and have good bloodlines I'd say go for it.

I would say that the dog is going to be OK but It is inbreeding and the dogs should not be sold with papers or and definately be spayd or nutered. He should be letting them go for darn near free no mater the background and with no breeding rights.Mistakes happen and the dog may be perfectly healthy and hunt and all but this would definately be the ethical thing to do.As a responsible breeder.

The actual act of inbreeding is for the most part a safe route when breeding dogs. There chomosones are much different than ours and you do not run the same risks as humans. It was/is (more so years ago) an effective tool to strengthen or solidify a line that a breeder was working on. Back then many father to daughter breedings happend.

It in effect magnafies all that makes up a dog. The good, the bad and the ugly.

So in essence, if your dog had a fantastic coat, it would further enhance the coat, if it had a whippy - curled tail, it would become more whippy curled, an inherited disorder would also be passed down automatically. You knew what traits you are dealing with, so the outcome is a lot easier to predict than with an outcross. So you saw a lot of breeders who had what they considered a very good specimen and tried to move it to one level closer to perfection. Now progressive generations of inbreeding will cause problems, solely from the magnification of traits being manipulated to an extreme, then an outcross would be needed. Once they achieved their ideals in a line, they would then begin successive line breeding, which many experts consider a slow death for any line.

Wild canines (ie: wolves, 'yotes etc.) always have and always will have a certain amount of inbreeding within their pack and it either further strengthens or further weakens the core.

All in all it should be fine. Look at the parents, their looks, style, personality and deffects and you should have a good idea of what your pup will turn into.

Good Luck!

I decided not to. I couldnt help feeling uneasy about not having any certified medical papers. thought the dogs are probably good,and they are really cheap, in the long run, I dont want to have to spend a fortune should something happen, and then find out it was directly related to the inbreeding. Thanks everyone

I don't think there will be an issue with any health things it is just simply an ethical deal that should not be looked twards breeding prospects. Yes you will here several opinions sending you in different ways and that is fine do not base your decision on my opinion, check with a vet, google the topic of inbreeding and read up on it and make an educated decision. The dogs do deserve at the least a good home like you probably can give and may be a great hunting dog for you.

I agree that the breeding itself is not a necessarily reason for concern if the parents have the proper health certifications. If they do not have the proper health certifications I would not feel safe saying that I would not think there could not be health issues.

If the parents did not have the proper health certs IMO you made a good choice. IMO, while all dogs deserve a good home, breeders need to be responsible and have the proper health certs for any breedings.

I agree with hemi. There is some great pages on google k-9 inbreeding, scroll some of the farther down ones and you will definately find varried opinions, Yes some breeders have and may still use inbreeding as a tool the responsible one knows how to control where and when or if that offspring is to be used in a future breeding, not selling the pups to the rest of the world to let pandoras box open. Because it is proven that this continued action will and has caused genetic defects, shortened lifespans, high litter mortality rates and several other issues that can come up if a novise breeder takes an inbred dog and does not know what they are doing. I bet this guy probably would not do this normaly. I personaly would not EVER try to let it happen, In todays world there is plenty of good options out there for stud choices and proper line or out cross breeding. Some will say there is three types of breeding, Line, out cross, and inbreeding. And a good breeder uses all three. Thats there opinion, but I bet if they do a inbreeding they don't let the offspring go as breedable dogs.They most likely keep a pup or two or the whole litter to moniter and use the one or two that gives them what they wanted and home the rest with spay or nuter agreements. It is a touchy subjuct but it just one of many. So good luck with what ever you decide.Ken

      I picked up a used 2013 Forest River True North 20x8 ice house. I got a decent deal on it but the front jack is having problems. When I try to raise up the tongue I get some loud clicking sounds from the jack and it's not raising. I'm prepared to just buy a whole new jack for it since I assume the internals are stripped but has anyone else a similar problem? This jack is rated for 3500lbs and the tongue weight is well under 1000lbs so I'm pretty disappointed with it. For right now I'm just using my car jack. Maybe I'll need it for the rear jacks.....

      Been a slow start to my season but finally found few decent crappies.They were in 23ft off structure. Tungsten jig tipped with white plastic did the trick to bring them topside. Can't beat plastics, caught tons of fish on just one. You know its on and doesn't fall off. Got some cool footage of the flasher in this video too.

      Got a pickup, wheel house, ATV and portable. Been to (not all this year) Lake of the Woods, Upper Red, and Mill Lacs. Any recommendations for something new? Otherwise may try to get to know the lakes near Garrison.

      5 sauger Saturday, 4 sauger and 3 pout Sunday out of Adrian’s. Started in deeper water, east of the crowd on Saturday. Sunday I moved around a bit, even drove the atv west of the crowd, 34 fow, with no luck. Spent the afternoon and evening in 25 fow near pine Island which was the only place I caught fish Sunday. Resort houses where mostly in 34 fow. Back home now.

      Hello from the NW Angle! Fishing remains consistently strong on the Minnesota side this week. Many species are quick to bite leaving anglers with a very mixed bag at the end of the day. We saw multiple 40+ inch Northern, many Perch, even a Lake Trout among an already strong Walleye bite. 22-24 ft on gravel bottom surrounded by mud has been our best spots. Be sure to charge up any Glow tackle in use, with the increasing snow cover, glow or lighted lures have been hot. Pink/white and gold are also very effective on sunny days. The Canadian bite just keeps getting better! Crappies can be found in 30 foot holes while 22-26 ft flats on break lines have been hot for a Sauger/Walleye mix. Remember to stick to well-traveled trails as most have not been staked/marked as of yet. Until next week!

      Not sure about the resort... But I know Adrians road is like 11 miles out past pine Island and they were plowing farther. Guy from my work was 9 miles out last weekend and did good on 14 inch sauger with some walleye mixed in.  He said there is 24 inches of ice.   I would say to try and get away from the groups.  Good luck fishing.

      Am heading up this weekend... Not sure where we going out of... But like to be away from the groups also. I usually go out of hunters but they are having road issues again. I am sure it will be resolved by Friday.

      Some good news and some bad news over the last week...  good news is that we made more ice!!  Bad news is that the fish keep moving (STAY PUT FISHY'S!!! LOL)!!    I'm finding 12-16" of ice on most lakes, but still practice caution.  I've been driving out on many area lakes with my Suburban but you still need to pay attention to the ice conditions and don't take any risks.  Some of the shoreline ice is a little weird and areas around islands, channels, neck-downs, etc, will continue to have bad ice... something you can expect all winter in some spots.  So, always use caution and don't go venturing "off the beaten path" if you don't know the lake or know where you're going.     Ok, onto the the fishing stuff!  A lot of fish still holding in the shallows, but they are constantly moving.  The additional pressure that the lakes are seeing has the fish more active--and not necessarily active as-in feeding, but more-so just roaming and moving around more.  The vehicle traffic will push fish around, same with the increase amount of holes being cut and just the increase in general fishing pressure.  So, preaching mobility is no longer an option... you have to PRACTICE mobility as well.  You know, the whole "practice what you preach" phenomenon.  Get those augers going and chase down the fish.  The shallow bite can require a lot of holes to find the consistent pattern, but once you figure them out you can hone-in on a more specific area and hammer-home.  Yesterday morning from 8am-11am I went through 4 batteries on my Milwaukee ripping holes, just be thankful the ice isn't 2-feet thick yet so it's a good time to get after 'em!   One thing I've noticed lately is that the fish are really relating to the bends on the shoreline structure.  Seems to hold them a bit longer than traditional flats and break lines.  The bends that have weeds are even better--assuming those weeds are alive and flourishing.  Not much snow on the ice so it makes for easy travel, too... but don't forget the cleats, or you'll know why real-quick!  Punch out those bends both on the edge and up on the shallow portion if there are weeds present.  The pattern has held true on a handful of lakes... Chisago area, Minnetonka, Forest Lake, Clearwater and many others.  Might be onto something... let me know if others find the same thing...   And for presentations, I've been absolutely crushing them on the Pinhead Mino with NO BAIT at all.  The 1/16oz has been deadly on crappies and gills.  An easy bait to fish when staying mobile and no messing with bait or even plastics.  I've had to slow down and finesse some fish with tungsten and plastics too, so don't get me wrong, but it's amazing what that Pinhead will catch! See pics below...   Otherwise I just keep glued to my Lowrance and Navionics chip, or else the Navionics App for my phone and continue to scout out new spots.  Never get complacent and keep searching out new spots.  I'm seeing the spots dry-up faster and faster after you find a "honey hole," so keep looking for that next one!   Some cool temps heading our way... might actually feel like winter in MN for a while! Lol.  I'll be back on the ice Friday-Sunday and I'll check a few more lakes and report back.  Good luck out there and be safe!
