Please check out my pup

This is a male pup from a very reputable breeder in US. He was exam with "abnormal gum" by vet on his first visit. I called the breeder told her the issue. She explained to me that it is "normal", gsds bite have to be scissor cut form. I have to agree with her by that point. But the true is the pup's gum is abnormal. The upper jaw is overshot over 1/2 inch. Please take a look at the picture and prove that vet and me are wrong. I spend $2750 for the pup, plus shipping and health certificate total was $3050. This is the pup that a reputable breeder so called "show quality".

I am no expert, but no that does not look normal. The upper and lower jaws should mate up. JMO.

That looks to me to be a horrifically extreme overbite. How do you know the breeder is reputable? Who recommended them to you and what was their experience, or did you just go by what a website said?

I agree, how old is he? this looks like a wicked wicked overbite. I don't think it will correct itself

ok, here is what she reply back against the overshot jaws.

"Like I said, when all puppies are teething.. their bites can be off. It is not abnormal.
When the puppy is done teething.. and all of his adult teeth are in... we can look into the situation again.
I would expect that the puppy's bite would be correct when he has time like all puppies to go through this process. It takes time to raise them and give them time to get these things done. "

I had raised two gsd before and none of them had this issue while they were teething. Guess, I have to listen to the breeder? The jaws of gsd would became overshot during teething period?

ahhh no Sure some can be "off", but his is grossly OFF, did you show a picture to the breeder?? and again how old is he??? His teeth aren't "off" his JAW is off, way overshot. his teeth will probably grow in fine, but his bite is going to be overshot.

It also may affect where the canines 'place' on his top jaw( poor guy,,does he eat ok?
