Dog's teeth at 5 months/underbite

Hey y'all. Just want some opinions on my pug mix puppy's teeth. When she first arrived (at about 4 months old) she seemed to have an underbite, but didn't have any teeth showing when her mouth was closed. One month later it's a different story. Her lower teeth show a little.

I've read dogs' teeth are pretty much done growing around 6 months. I still think she's adorable, and it doesn't seem like they are bothering her any, but I'm wondering if you all think her bite will get much worse now that she's five months old (appearance and health wise)? Any chance it'll correct or get better? Anything I should be doing or not doing?

pics of the teeth

You can see pics of her teeth in October 2015 here at her Instagram (yeah, I know, I made an instagram for my dog).

Could have something to do with the pug side of her. Brachycephalic dogs have underbites sometimes. I don't think it will cause you a lot of trouble, although you might have to be more diligent with mouth care, making sure her teeth don't irritate the roof of the mouth, and overall dental hygiene awareness.
She's really cute though
