Default 4 month old beagle with a small bottom jaw?

Hi guys,

We recently took our beagle Bernie to the vet and was told that he had a small bottom jaw. He is only four months old, and when we brought him, we were told he was a pure bread beagle. We brought him at 12 weeks and had no issues, until he grew up abit more. Now we can actually notice his small bottom jaw, I am very scared that it might cause him alot of issues when he gets older.

Has anyone had this issue before or heard of anything like this?

Thanks in advance

This is a inherited condition.

A good source of information: About Dogs - Malocclusion - Incorrect Bite

Dog Malocclusions (Underbite or Overbite) and Unstable Jaw on MedicineNet
