My guess is that the breeder *is* intentionally linebreeding on her dog to keep a dog back and breed *that* dog to a more open pedigree. I do think the breeder is well aware of the linebreeding, whether or not we all agree with it or would want to do the same is another matter, we all want different things in our dogs and have different ideas about what to breed and what type to set.
Whether or not this litter is right for you, I would discuss that with the breeder.
