Inbreeding isn't necessarily a bad thing. It should be left to experienced breeders though. If I get the right combination of dogs one day, I do plan to get into inbreeding, but I'm not anywhere near that stage yet.
Spine trouble isn't necessarily due to her breeding choices, but it is possible if there is a history of bad backs in the family tree. Inbreeding concentrates traits - good and bad, so it is important not to double up on the negative.
