Default Accidental Inbreeding by brother sister

Ok. So I have a question. I am looking to purchase my first GSD and I have contacted a trainer/breeder and she doesn't have any dogs available but she has a former client of hers who bought two dogs from her male and female from the same litter and there was an accidental breeding. And that is why the puppies will be cheap. Both parent dogs are extremely healthy and come from great bloodlines. I just dont know what to do. Any thoughts?

Run Away!

Seriously.

Healthy dogs or not, I wouldn't touch that one with a barge pole.

I wouldn't do it if I were you, but post their pedigrees if you want some real input.

I would not buy a pup from a brother/sister pairing, no matter how cheap.

I have to agree with Castlemaid (Lucia) on this one.

If you had a daughter and a son, would you let them have children?

Think about what you are getting into ... it might have been an "accidental" breeding, but the "breeder" (and I use that term loosely) is being completely irresponsible by even letting it happen, and then letting the pregnancy continue.

Just my two cents ...

what does 'no other lines were crossed' mean?
Not sure I understand that one.

and no I wouldn't want a brother/sister breeding to close for my taste.

Yeah - even to take it a step further, I find it strange that the original trainer/breeder that the OP contacted to begin with would even direct the OP to such a pairing for purchase. I can't imagine a good breeder doing that.

This. Most reputable breeders won't even sell two pups to one person (particularly litter mates and at the same time). I mean in special circumstances, with experienced owners who they trust then maybe... But definitely not to someone who would accidentally allow this inbreeding then let the female carry full-term.
