Hi Everyone,

We are super excited to be getting a Miki Puppy. Our breeder just told us that she has a Tight Underbite? Does anyone know what this means? Do underbites get worse when puppies loose their baby teeth?

From looking at the standard, it sounds like it's an acceptable bite? "Bite-The bite should be a tight scissor to slightly undershot, neither preferred. May have slight space between top and bottom teeth providing the teeth never show when the mouth is closed. A missing tooth or slightly unaligned teeth should not be too severely penalized. Teeth and tongue should not show when mouth is closed. Fault: overshot bite." http://www.americanmi-kiregistryassociation.com/AMRA - Official Breed Standard 8 '07.pdf
