For me: if they are related, it's inbreeding. That doesn't mean I care though, I don't mind inbred petz at all! They are just pixels and there aren't any negative consequences. It's more of a 'non inbred petz are harder to breed so they are a bit special' kind of thing and in that case they have to have absolutely no ancestors in common. In other words for me it's 'Go big or go home' haha.
Interesting fact though: in real life, being inbred depends on the amount of genes that they have 'double' (as in both copies from the same ancestor). This means that if both copies of all genes are identical the animal would be 100% inbred. Why do I bring this up? Because this means that if you breed this 100% inbred animal with an entirely different non related other 100% inbred animal then the offspring would have a different copy of each gene, it would be reset to 0. So, unlike in petz where inbred is forever marked as inbred by Petza, in real life all you have to do is cross two unrelated lines!
So... Considering the blue eyed gene was a mutation in one man AND is recessive, that means all blue eyed people have two copies from this guy and thus are a little inbred. xD /all us humans are but hey lol
I'm very strict when it comes to breeding Petz, therefore no inbreeding for me. Besides, everyone's Petz are inbreds anyway but it doesn't really make much of a difference. If I'm told to breed two Petz together and I find out that at least one of them's related either closely by blood or just three generations down, then it's a no-no.

Agreed with Alex. I've tried non-inbreeding from scratch for fun but without inbreeding it takes forever to get nice looking petz and I don't have that kind of patience. Pretty sure tree trimming shows them as inbred anyways so if they get high enough in generations to lag and have to be trimmed none of the work mattered xP
To me, if they're related in any way, they're inbred. But I don't mind at all if they are.
I usually like to get very mixed mixies (the more different breedz physically showing, the better), so I often breed non-inbred petz that look very different from each other. But when I'm after particular features, I don't hesitate inbreeding and even changing genders.

Personally, I avoid inbreeding at all costs. It just doesn't feel right to me at all, even if they are just pixels. In my mind, if they share a relative, it's inbreeding. But I don't mind adopting inbred petz at all! <3 To this day I've never tried it, and I'm not sure I ever will. It's just a personal preference!

I don't mind very much if a pet is inbred but I do think it's very nice when a pet is non inbred. I'd adopt an inbred pet in a heartbeat but I never breed related petz. I have a theory that breeding a non inbred pet would have better genetic diversity, and better physical traits and mutations might come out instead of inherited traits from being inbred.

Sploot: So! I have a bit of an issue. I downloaded Dogz 5 again recently. But for some reason when i go to modify the carrying case in Tinker and put everything in the case, it doesnt show up in my Dogz 5 game. Any ideas?

Catbaloo: Make sure to run tinker and Dogz 5 as administrator or it will not save your changes.
