underbite???

Whimsy has a very slight underbite. She was the only one in her litter to have that. Does not seem to be a problem whatsoever...just wondering if anyone else's pooch has one. Most of the time it doesn't show but sometimes when she looks at me it seems as if she is smiling..cracks me up LOL

She looks like she's smiling. The underbite makes her cute!

That is adorable! Abby has what they call a crossbite and you can see her teeth a little bit on one side of her mouth every once in a while. It looks kind of like a funny little sneer!

Oh Clover has one! He has one bottom canine tooth you can usually see - his "snaggle tooth" - and he often looks like he's smiling in pictures.

When he was little vets were concerned he'd have problems with his teeth as he got older, but I've been very good at cleaning them and he's approaching 14 with all teeth intact!

We had a mixed breed farm dog who had over an inch of underbite. She never had a problem eating, and lived to something like 17 years old. I don't think it has any ill effect at all.

Pepper has one. He looks like Lon Chaney in The Wolfman. It's cute. He has no trouble eating, drinking or playing bitey-face. Some days, when he holds his head just so, it looks like his lower jaw was knocked out of alignment just a bit, maybe when he was a pup. It doesn't affect him in the least, though. I think it adds character

Shelby has one, too. It doesn't seem to bother her at all. The only problem I ever noticed was that her front teeth were not as clean as the others. So a little more brushing and Plaque Off (thank you, Tom) seems to have worked. You can see it a bit in this pic.
