    I've read on the net that a pure breed boxer has crooked bottom teeth and that they overlap the upper teeth. My question is, if the pup has scissor like teeth, he is not a full blood boxer? :O

    A boxer should have an underbite. The lack of an underbite could indicate that the dog is not purebred, but it's also possible that he is purebred -- but a result of poor breeding practices.

    Dante has had a clear underbite since I got him at 8 weeks old. Not only noticeable looking at him normal, but if you pull his lips back and his mouth is closed... there is a nice gap between his teeth.. so much so that it's quite humerous. lol.

    It should be visible as a young puppy. My poorly bred boy (BYB, didn't know better) with a longer nose than normal has had a visible underbite since we got him at 8 weeks old.

    Even if your pup is mixed, I'm sure she is adorable. :) If you post pics, some people on here are decent at guessing breeds....might be worth a shot.
