    • Abstract


      A new autosomal recessive gene is described in long-haired dachshunds which causes a faulty occlusion of the front teeth. It appears that the primary effect of the gene results in a shortening of the anterior parts of the mandible. The faulty occlusion thus produced apparently leads to a lengthening of the upper jaw.
