overbite -- just curious

So, my older son keeps saying Baxter looks like a Fraggle (if you remember the old Jim Henson show), meaning that he has a slight overbite). Is this a breed characteristic? A common breed flaw? I don't care a bit, but, now that he's mentioned it, I do see it when I look at Baxter, and we've started calling him "Fraggle mouth." :0

It's not a breed characteristic, but just like some people, they all don't have perfect teeth. A 6 over 6 scissor bite is preferred, but there are many Champions in the ring that have less than the ideal preferred bite.
