Default Small breed, lacking teeth

I know small breeds can have random teeth issues.. I've just never experienced it. I brought a 13 month old home tonight.. and well, he's lacking teeth. Not a lack of room as his mouth isn't that small, but there are a ton of gaps.. Doesn't seem to be hurting him, he eats happily. Doesn't really want me to examine his mouth but he has tiny nubs where canines should be. Not worn down, just not full canines..

Is this 'normal' in some breeds? He's on the rather large side of the breed.. but his teeth are still lacking.

Is this a Frenchie? My friend tells me that's super common and to quote her, "Our standard doesn't even require our breed to HAVE teeth."

It's normal in some breeds or at least not uncommon. Mia is missing a couple teeth here and there. She has full canines but is missing one upper front tooth.

I've never seen nubby canines though.

Is this a permanent addition!?

Is this a friendly dog? I've heard of people filing down biting dog's teeth...yeah.

Otherwise...yeah messed up teeth in small dogs are kind of common. The shihtzu I brought home has no bottom teeth between her canines.

Hilarious Emily.. I can't say I'd heard that even in all my researching. He is not though.. He is a chinese crested, but a rather large one.. in height and lord, in weight at the moment.. Past 2 years I've looked hard at CCs, mini poodles and frenchies. This guy fell into my lap though.. And it's kind of gratifying that while not from a bad situation, he's pretty happy with the upgrade so far.

His nubby canines haven't been filed. It's not wear like fiber glass tennis balls and rocks do either. While from a breeder, he was a free rehome directly from her. Will need to keep on Beau's weight loss thread to help this guy. I've never had anything this fat...

If he works out, he will be perma. I'm pretty sure he's pretty cute under the scraggly fur, with a bath and brush and future fitness He needs a new name.. Planned to post about that tomorrow though. Couldn't wait to ask about his teeth though.. Tongue can hang way further out without teeth in the way, lol.

Oh if it's a hairless breed they are notorious for lack of teeth and teeth falling out with age.

It has long been suspected that the mutation influenced a very early stage of embryonic development on genes that control skin, hair, nails and teeth. It is known that one of three primary germ layers, the ectoderm, becomes the epidermis and all derivative structures including teeth. This study provided more insight into the mechanics of how this occurs. The protein encoded by FOXI3 is produced in embryonic tissues that develop into hair. The mutation activates development of hair and teeth in one of the genes and suppresses it in the other one. Leeb says the mutation ***8220;most likely interferes with the genetic instructions for hair and teeth proteins.***8221; Although the exact function of the FOXI3 gene is not yet completely understood, other genes in the FOX family are known to control embryonic development in mammals.

LOL yeah, it's bizarre. Dentition is def not a priority in the breed. My friend wouldn't breed one with teeth that were causing issues, but yeah.

I see it's a CC! Cute, I can't wait to see pics. Good luck with the little guy!

Cresties are really prone to exceptionally bad teeth and missing teeth from what I know.

I love Cresities. Is he a PP?

What everyone else says - it's pretty common for Cresteds to end up with few to no teeth at a very young age.
