Many humans have the privilege of regular dentist check-ups, and brushing and flossing are no big deal thanks to having opposable thumbs. For our canine friends who can’t enjoy the luxury of dentistry or opposable thumbs, they’re much more likely to have crooked teeth with dramatic over/underbites and teeth pointing in all directions. Lucky for them, it often totally enhances their cuteness and makes them stand out from their straight-toothed counterparts. Here are 20 pooches who totally own their underbites.
Puppy Dog Eyes
Not only does this guy have a super-cute underbite, he also has some of the sweetest puppy-dog eyes ever.
The technical term for an underbite is “mandibular prognathism.” That just doesn’t have as nice a ring to it as “underbite” does though.
Kim Kardasian’s selfies have nothing on this pooch’s skills! That’s one cute close-up.
Ball of Squish
It appears this dog might have ran face-first into a door, or it’s doing its best “melted candle” impression.
“Could you take that picture again, please? You seem to have caught me mid-sneeze.”
Begging for a trip to the orthodontist, perhaps? It’s probably pretty hard to say no to that sweet face!

This pup’s teeth go in the same direction as its hair – which probably wasn’t planned, and is certainly no easy feat!
This dog has a lot going for it: not only does it have a fantastic underbite, it rocks multicolored teeth too!
You may have noticed that bulldogs have underbites more often than other dogs. That’s because bulldogs’ jaws are compressed much tighter than other breeds.

Good Bad Guy
This little guy looks like he could be the Cutest Villain Ever in a superhero movie.
