A rescued dog does not have papers. This means you have no way of knowing anything about your dog's parents or her parents parents. Even if you were to get your particular dog's hips, hearing, eyes and temperament tested and she is found to be healthy and free of flaws, you still don't know if her ancestors were also free from disease. Your dog may carry genes for undesirable health and/or temperament traits, even if these traits do not actually appear in your dog.
Responsible breeders will only breed a dog to improve the quality of the breed. Since you don't know the genetic history of a rescue dog, there is NO responsible way to breed this particular dog, or any rescue dog for that manner.
Breeding dogs of unknown descent results in disease, genetic problems and behavior problems. (I.E. AGGRESSION).

Nope, not a vet but work with several. I've been working in animal welfare and rescue for quite a long time and I CARE about animals, which is why I try to keep people who are adamantly against educating themselves from making big mistakes.
