If you really want to know what happens to inbreds, then look closely at the British Royal Family.

I kid, I kid.

Seriously, though, inbreeding can cause all kinds of health problems.

You have good advice not to breed siblings!

Check out this board if you have any interest in breeding your german shepherds.

Yes, this affects dogs. If the dog carries any genetic problems, those get focused and intensified when breeding siblings, just like in humans. No offense, but it sounds like you don't know anything about what you're trying to do and definitely shouldn't be messing around with backyard breeding.

PLEASE.....Spay & Neuter your pets! Millions a year are euthenized in shelters because there are just not enough homes for them all. We do not need any more pups in this world right now. For every pup born, someones wonderful abandoned pet or stray in the shelter is euthenized!

I'm going to be mean and nasty, but if you CAN'T even spell the Breed of the Dog that you own, then you have NO business of breeding one.
Don't even get me started on this particular breed and breeding.



It's a German SHEPHERD Dog, BTW
