    Default Female dog private parts

    OK, I admit, I don't know what a female dog's privates are supposed to look like. I have Dahlia's first vet appointment set for next week on Tuesday. But, not knowing is killing me. She has what looks like a tiny penis extending from her vaginal area. WHAT IS THIS? Should I be worrying? She doesn't lick it. She doesn't seem to have any issues peeing. My husband asked me what it was and I was like, "I don't know. Just because I'm a girl doesn't mean I know!" My husband also said we shouldn't worry and that we should just wait to see what the vet says. Help. This reminds me of when I got Luciano. When I got him, his testicles hadn't descended. They never did. I had never had a dog, so I didn't even notice until I took him to the vet the first time. Oh, the things we learn as dog owners.

    Best,

    Since she is comfortable and happy, I would let it go until you get to the vet. There is such a thing as hermaphroditism in which the dog exhibits both male and female organs. But for now, work on integrating her to the family and let the vet look at it at her appointment.

    I agree to wait till you see the vet. It may be hermaphroditism or could it be that her clitoris is sticking out (I can't believe I typed that!)? As for Luciano, has he been neutered?

    Oh, yes, both are "fixed." He was neutered when he was 4 or 5 months old. Very young, but it was recommended because his testicles weren't going to descend. She was spayed. I don't know when. Good questions.

    Both of my girls' "girly bits" look a little different from the other's. I attribute this to the fact that Misty just had one puppy, and I really don't know how many Suki had (both are rescues- but I am acquainted with the lady I got Misty from).

    When looking at Suki's rear end, if she's just standing there, her little bits are right there for the world to see! Misty's just look like a little line, but if she's on her belly you can see her little bits, but they resemble more of a female puppy's- much smaller than Suki's!

    You can KINDA make out Suki's little girly-bits here!



    I have a pic at home of Misty on her back getting a belly rub where her's show, but it's not uploaded!

    I am quite positive Suki would be appalled that I posted her bits for the world to see! ...... oh, wait a minute, we're talking about Suki here... she'd probably be proud! ha! ha!

    Sounds normal to me. I'm sure if there had been any problem, it would have been noted at the time she was spayed.

    Ohh if she has been spayed then there is nothing to really worry about. I would just take her in for an exam to rule out anythng more serious, but pugina's all look diffrent. Some are inverted more than others, I have 6 girls and not one looks alike.

    I'd say just wait until your vet appointment next week. My Penny birthed at least one puppy before we got her from the shelter, and her vagina sticks out a bit and all is fine.
