Experienced Breeders

image4

Located in Central Louisiana, Charolais Golden Retrievers breeds a few litters a year. Our Sire is 100% European with Champion bloodlines. Our Dams are 100% American Golden's with AKC Grand Champions & Champions Close up in their pedigrees, These crosses on lineage results in a C.O.I  

 (Coefficient Of Inbreeding) of 0% resulting in very healthy beautiful puppies. 


Inbreeding and Linebreeding

Inbreeding  differs in degree from linebreeding, a common practice in certain  purebred dog circles. Inbreeding occurs when mothers or fathers mate  with offspring and produce puppies, or when brothers and sisters breed.  It's not something that ever should be done on purpose. Linebreeding  mates other relatives, such as uncle and niece and canines with similar  close family ties. The idea is to produce dogs that hew as closely as  possible to the breed standard, so breeders might choose related  specimens possessing those qualities. That doesn't make linebreeding  particularly good for the breed genetically, but there is a reason  behind the practice.

Physical Signs

Inbred  dogs usually don't grow as large as noninbred dogs of the same type or  breed. The growth of inbred puppies is considerably slower than "normal"  young dogs. Some inbred dogs are identifiable by asymmetrical features,  such as one eye lower than the other.

Genetic Defects

You  might have heard that certain breeds are prone to particular genetic  defects. That might include hip dysplasia in German shepherds, Addison's  disease in Portuguese water dogs, cardiac problems in boxers and  Cavalier King Charles spaniels, deafness in Dalmatians -- there's a list  for virtually every purebred dog. Inbred dogs have higher risks of  cancer, allergies and other common canine conditions. The majority of  these defects result from continuing to breed dogs known to carry such  defects, and breeding closely related animals.

Inbred Breeding

Inbred  dogs often suffer from higher mortality rates and shorter life spans.  Purebred dogs with little inbreeding in their pedigrees might live years  longer than inbred canines of the same breed. Inbred females tend to  give birth to smaller litters, with a higher incidence of birth defects  among the puppies. Inbred dogs might have an apparent "lack of vigor,"  or fitness. Overall, inbred dog fertility is lower than canines without  close relatives in the family tree. "Anecdotal evidence suggests that  loss of genetic variation and high levels of inbreeding have adverse  consequences for canine health and fertility," according to an article  on inbreeding and pedigree analysis appearing on the May 2008 issue of  the journal "Genetics."
