Hey all. :)

So basically Percy has a slight underbite. Was wondering if anyone else had chihuahuas with underbites? I know this is a very common finding in other breeds but never thought chis were one of them.

I've never heard it's common in chihuahuas, unless they are mixed with a peke or shihtzu etc. None of my chihuahuas have ever had a bad bite. It's hereditary, but sometimes is just a fluke. I have had a couple of poodle puppies have one, but it was just a glitch. None of my parents have a bad bite.
Dogs with bad bites should NEVER be bred! Puppies with bad bites should have a lower price, even tho its mostly just cosmetic. It does not affect the puppies health unless its severe.
