Teething

My Sheltie is 6 and 1/2 months old and she appears to be missing an upper canine tooth. Is this common in Shelties to have missing teeth as adults?

Missing Teeth are common
by: Yankee Shelties

Usually, the missing teeth are the pre molars, while the upper canines can be lance (pointing forward rather than down). I have also seen incisors come in crooked. I have not been aware of missing canines however. Only way to know what is going on is an X-ray of the area. Did she lose her baby canine ok?
