Term Definition
Undershot Bite

The bottom jaw is longer than the upper jaw so that the bottom incisors overlap the upper teeth. A few breeds have naturally occuring undershot bites, but for all other breeds this is a disqualifying trait in the show ring.


Unlike the uterus of a human, which is pear shaped, the uterus of a Dog is "Y" shaped with the arms of the "Y" being porportionally longer than the base. The 2 arms are called uterine horns and extend from the top of the base to the ovaries. Small tubes, called oviducts, connect the ovaries to the tops of the uterine horns. The eggs travel from the ovaries, through the oviducts and after fertilization, attach to the lining of the uterine horns where they develop. The uterus is separated from the vagina by the cervix. (See Cervix.)
