Just wanted to get the word out about this awesome little girl, the last rescue from the awful breeder I've been dealing with...doggie # 7. Her name is Noel, and she's a TOTAL sweetheart. She's a purebred APBT, Nat'l Gr Ch. sired, but was born with a birth defect, so the guy couldn't sell her. She was born with a serious overbite (and a slight crossbite), causing her to look like a bull terrier. This does not seem to cause her any distress, she eats, drinks and plays like a normal dog. She was spayed 2 weeks ago and healed up perfectly. She's about 6 mos old and just about 40 lbs. She has beautiful blue-grey eyes too! The only "issue" she has is that she must be walked on a harness, as any pressure on her trachea causes her to cough.
And some pictures to show off her teeth:
And here's a short video of her playing with some toys. She is super playful!!

She didn't mention any trouble, but said whoever adopts her will have to be really careful with her teeth. Since she doesn't have a correct bite, the teeth can't really "self clean" in the back like a normal bite. We've started teaching her to accept having her teeth brushed, she's doing ok, but doesn't love it. She'll probably need to have regular dentals done as she gets older. She's a really sweet girl, and so athletic! I think she has a beautiful build too. I just love her.
