Answer

hi – many thanks for her email. Inbreeding is breeding in between close relatives, such as brother and also sister. Your concern is what happens when they mate and will the puppies be it s okay or have actually abnormalities?

Inbreed animals often have actually reduced an ext health problems and also physical defects. Genetic difficulties are an ext common; over there is enhanced infant mortality, slower development rate, smaller adult size, ns of immune duty and other feasible problems.

It is feasible that the litter could be okay however also feasible there could be lot of problems. That is a very bad idea to intentionally breed littermates.
