    What Riko had is "Cleft Lip"

    Cleft Lip and Palate In Dogs

    Did you know that dogs can be born with a cleft lip and palate? Most of us associate this devastating birth defect to humans, but it happens just as well in the animal world. A cleft lip or palate can occur when the bone and tissue in the roof of the mouth do not develop properly during pregnancy.

    This condition is primarily a genetic defect and is hereditary, however it can also be caused by the mother taking certain drugs while pregnant, as an example, treating a pregnant dog with corticosteroids, excessive vitamin A, and exposure to insecticides during pregnancy is known to cause cleft lip in puppies. In addition, pregnant dogs suffering from malnutrition or infections have a higher risk of having puppies with this birth defect.
    While dogs are not as self conscious of the cosmetic aspects of a cleft lip, the health risks can be significant. Puppies born with a cleft lip need to be watched closely. Nursing for a puppy with a cleft lip can be difficult, which may result in regurgitation, aspiration pneumonia, and malnutrition. Brachycephalic (nose pushed in) breeds such Bulldogs, Pugs, Pekinese, and Boston Terriers run the highest risk for cleft lip in dogs.

    OK, here is a pic of my sisters staffy x maltese. Don't know what happened but he looks like an alien dog. LOL. A friend on another forum touched the pic up a bit so doesn't look too bad. Couldn't get any more pics at the time because as soon as Nugget sees the camera he heads for the scrub. LOL. He is a lovely boy and about 10 years old.

    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    He's cute, but to be honest i cant see any Stafford in him at all..all i see is some type of "big" silky terrier type breed in him.
