Do pits have underbites?? medium coats??

I have a dog that I think is mixed with a pitbull or maybe it's a full pitbull. He has about a 4mm underbite. Do pits have underbites? Also his coat is a little longer than some of the pits that I've seen. Is this possible in a full pit?

Correct me if i am wrong but any dog can have underbite and overbite, just like any human can have clef lip, underbite doesn't mean your dog is a certain breed And there coats are glossy and smooth, close, and moderately stiff to the touch

Pits

Well I've been on google and I saw articles that said that pits don't have underbites when their pure breed. Maybe I read the wrong information. Check out my profile and tell me what do you think about my pup. Does he look like a pit? Does the type of coat matter? His coat was a little longer than the pits I run across

Just because it has an underbite doesn't mean it's not a pit bull. He's really cute and looks like a pit but you can never be certain.

Pits

What about the block head? Do all pits have that trait? My puppy doesn't have a block head but his head is kind of big

as said any type of dog can have an underbite.
and most have bigger heads but I've seen some that don't.
maybe you just have a pit mix.
we have a pit lab with longer fur,
and he's awesome.

A Pit Bull can have an underbite. I've known some personally that had them. Its actually quite a common fault in the breed, and doesn't mean impurity. As for a longer coat, that's a harder sell with me. Every APBT I've ever met has had a short coat. Sometimes their coats are more dense, but never noticeably longer. If, for example, I saw an "APBT" that had a coat the length of a Labrador's, I would suspect its purity.

LOL no no i think the picture you have in your head is the steriotype for a pitbull heres a site to check on on confirmation of the APBT American Pit Bull Terrier Network Pit Bull Encyclopedia A to Z about the APBT
There will be no way to say your pup is a pure without proof of liniage.
but im sure you will love him the same if hes not

Ive ben told that undershot and overshot is a inbreeding fault is that true people?

It's not necessarily an inbreeding fault, even some very responsible breeders will see it from time to time in any breed, however, that dog would not be bred. I think underbite is very common in poorly bred bullies because many breeders mix in EB to get the shorty bull look, and EBs have underbites. BYBers will make up excuses for these types of faults because they tend to be more common in BYB stock and they dont want to admit they have a mixed dog in their program, so they will say the fault is because of linebreeding, I mean you need to make sacrifices if you want to see Juan Gotti 9 times in 6 generations right? :-) However, any dog, mixed or pure can have an underbite. I mean my brother has perfect teeth, and I wore braces for like 7 years lol, just the luck of the draw. In good breeding programs you will see it less, because responsible breeders sell pups to pet homes on spay neuter contracts when they have a fault, so it doesnt continue to show up.

Under bites are not the end of the world and some famous pit dogs had under bites. The UKC sees it more of a fault than the ADBA. I know many UKC CH's and GR CH's with under bites and the same goes for the ADBA. While it is undesirable it does not really affect the function of the [] dog and what it was originally bred to do. Some dogmen had said it gave a stronger bite, I will have to try and find that article I read about it, it is on gamedog.com.
I have a few dogs with under bites and all are pets with the exception of Typhoon. IMO her bite is not pretty but she has done well in the ADBA including a 1st in a large class of bitches. She also has the best grip out of any of my dogs in Schutzhund. She has a nice deep full grip and the under bite does not get in the way of he work. As far as breeding goes I have no clue she is still a pup and has not proven her self worthy of breeding. She would have to turn out exceptional dog and pass all other health tests before I would consider it.

Who ever said that under bites mean it is not a true pit bull has no clue about dogs. Under bites occur in all breeds of dogs and is not used to determine purity.
