Unfortunately inbreeding is often deliberately practiced as part of pedigree dog breeding usually attempt to breed for a particular ‘look'. It is scientifically proven that inbreeding increases the incidence of inherited disorders and can affect how well a dog's immune system functions. As the level of inbreeding or linebreeding increases, the risks to the puppies' health and welfare increase. To reduce the risk of inherited problems it's important to avoid breeding closely related animals. If you're buying a puppy or dog, you should check their family history to make sure there are no close relative matings, such as father-daughter or grandfather-granddaughter matings. This is a particular concern if your dog is a purebred or pedigree dog. This family tree shows how health problems are increased by inbreeding. Recessively inherited disorder Progressive retinal atrophy This example shows how a recessively inherited disorder such as PRA, which causes blindness, occurs when a Grandfather dog called Champ is mated to his own Granddaughter. Champ carries a defective Because Champ and his granddaughter are related and share common ancestors, she also carries the same defective When Champ and his Granddaughter mate, they each pass on a copy of the defective d to the puppies. These two copies of the same defective then combine the puppies and are expressed as a disease this case, on average, 25% of the puppies born would suffer from blindness and 50%
