My vet just researched this for me. It can be passed on to pups... previously thought it was caused by mom's tugging at umbilical cord. It's not.

      Most umbilical hernias are caused by trauma to umbilcal cord at whelping or while still attached. I likely would not breed a dog with one but it is unlikely that it is going to be passed on.
