Rat Terrier with Underbite

rat terrier head

Meet Missy , a Rat Terrier with a cute underbite. Many small dogs, like the Rat Terrier are prone to dental problems and luxating patella, along with a few other common ailments.

In some extreme cases, misaligned teeth might irritate the roof of the dog's mouth, or its tongue. That's when some of those misaligned teeth may need to be pulled. Generally speaking, the only result of malocclusion is a funny under or overbite. With good oral health,  the Rat Terrier is healthy and hardy, and may live as long as 18 years. 

I thought Missy's underbite is rather cute and gives her a super cute expression. If you like to learn more about my portrait sizes and prices click below.
