Whats it called when a dog has an underbite?
When I search for dog breeds with underbites, all it brings up are pictures of dogs that have sever underbites, even if its not what I mean.
By Underbites, I mean like Bulldogs, boxers and the like whose bottom jaw line have their bottom teeth in front of their top teeth.
malocclusion is the word you're looking for anon
they're common in dogs who have been bred to such extremes that their faces are pretty much deformed and the jaws/teeth are misaligned as a result. meaning brachycephalic dogs
Thats what I thought too, but Pitbulls, mastiffs, and other molossers don't have under bites.
The real reason for all of this, is I'll be moving into an apartment soon, but a lot of apartments don't allow pitbulls.
All a pitbull is, is the extinct white terrier and bulldog mix.
So I'm looking for dogs that are about the size of a pitbull, but aren't a pitbull.
Molossers are close but a lot are too big like mastiffs, or too small like bulldogs, or have underbites like boxers.
So I'm trying to find a dog as big as a pitbull, with no underbite, but is probably part of the molosser group.
If I know the real name for underbite breeds, I can't know which ones not to get. And I can't maybe get a molosser mix.
>but Pitbulls, mastiffs, and other molossers don't have under bites
it's actually very common for pitbulls and many varieties of mastiffs to have under bites, just not to the extent that the bottom teeth show out of the lip
The under bite is so when they bite they don't and hold thier teeth don't tear up tier target>>2041682
