I've got a litter of 9 week old puppies (my 1st ever) and I just noticed that one of the boys doesn't have the normal bite. His bottom jaw extends past his upper. I haven't noticed this problem before today. Could this possibly be a growth thing? Might his bite correct itself as he continues to grow up? Any input would be appreciated.

My mini had an underbite at 9 wks....it did eventually correct itself at around 4-5 months old. However, I don't think that's necessarily the norm. My toy also has an underbite, it never corrected itself. It's better then it was, but still there nonetheless!
