Is my yorkie still a virgin? Her lady parts hang down about 1/2 inch. Her nipples are large too. Rescued from an idiot.

She is 5 and not fixed. The girl says she never had puppies. Why does she have these characteristics?

If she's not spayed, she's had many heat (estrus) cycles. With each heat, even if unbred, most female dogs experience a "false pregnancy" afterward, including lactating. So that would explain her large nipples. Her large vulva is probably just because she's intact- most female dogs nowadays are spayed before sexual maturity, so their vulvas stay small and juvenile-looking. An adult female vulva looks large in comparison.

I hope you're going to spay her soon- every extra heat cycle makes a female more susceptible to pyometra, an often-fatal infection of the uterus, and very common in older intact females.
