Dear all

I like so much the European Dobermans, and always i notice in there pedigrees there is a crossing blood . as it shows in the pedigree i have upload .

Is that going to effect the generation of the dog?

I am not expert im just curious as always about this great breed, by the genetic is that acceptable ? Is this issue will cause health problem as well ?

This pedigree shows how many time Baron Nike Renewal cross the bloodline

I am confused by your question. Are you asking if this is a European pedigree? If so, yes it is. Are you asking if this pedigree will be good for health? If so, then there a couple of concerning dogs in there in my opinion, but who knows for sure.

I think it's pretty common practice, but I'm certainly no expert.

I believe if you look at the pedigrees of many dobes (euro/na) you will find linebreeding. It is common. There is a website that is available for checking pedigrees on dobes. Search Dobequest and follow the instructions to view info on dogs.

Line breeding is a two sided coin....it can set the best genetics and attributes in a line...but it can also uncover any lurking weaknesses in both depending on each mating. (keeping it really simple). It is possible to fine line breeding calculators that can tell you the tightness of line breeding to any particular dog via google.

Tight linebreeding is not necessarily a bad thing...as if done responsibly and knowledgably it should have more probability of producing sought after qualities rather than bad....but there are a lot of breeders out there who don't necessarily fall into the categories of knowledgeable (with regards to the science of gentetics) or responsible ;) ....so do your research on each proposed mating carefully! ... and be prepared that if it goes bad...it can be really bad...but if it goes good you might get exactly what you're looking for.

It's quite a complex subject and really hard to make any generalisations that are anywhere close to accurate. Best advice is research, research, research! ....and then choose what you are personaly comfortable with.
