Pictures of Havanese with an undershot jaw/underbite

Does anyone have a picture of their Havanese (adult) who has an underbite? I just placed a 9 week old pet female and the owners would like to see if the lips generally cover the teeth as they get older.
She is adorable now....
Thank you!!!!

underbite

In my pup's bite, the lower gums extended past/forward of the upper gums. Breeders check bites as soon as teeth start coming in. This was my first to ever look like this. Both parents have beautiful bites.

Here is Sammy who has an overbite. Not the same thing, I know, but wanted to show a picture anyway.
I was told by the vet that it wasn't going to be a health concern.

I think Shelby has a little underbite. Sometimes when she looks up a certain way, it looks like Kathy's pup in the bottom pic.
