Stupid question of the day. Is my dog a girl or a boy? Pic included.

Seriously. She's 13 weeks. She was sold as a girl. But she kind of has a bit of a micropenis. I've never had a bitch before and don't know if its normal, puppy hormones or something??

Looks like a boy to me, mostly due to the position.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:15:08

Mmmm, that's kind of what I'm thinking.

Looks like a female to me, is the pointy bit fur (my female dogs have a piece of fur that looks like that).

What breed is she?

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:16:31

Cavachon.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:17:25

Someone at work got sold a girl and it was a boy (different litter) and I remember thinking how can you not tell. Dogs have a penis. And now I'm like....hmm

Is this the dog's belly? Have you had a look at the back end?

I have to admit my puppy and kitten sexing skills really depend on having a whole litter to look at simultaneously... The boys are the ones whose lumpy bit is much nearer the umbilicus, the girls are the ones whose lumpy bit is much nearer the anus.

Coolas grin

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:20:22

Well I can't find any testicles so that's promising. Would she have obvious testicles by now if she was a boy?

Thanks for the pic Dave, that's reassured me a bit.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:21:41

Yes, I'm thinking this lump seems to be more on her belly.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:22:43

I need some brain bleach after googling, how to sex my dog.

emotionsecho Fri 31-Oct-14 15:23:00

Ok I've just checked my girl dogs, much to their indignation, one of them has girl bits that look very similar to your photograph (the other one's are bigger and a slightly different shape), both have a fur bit similar to your photograph, but in both cases their bits seem closer to their bottoms/tail than in your photo. So not much help really, sorrygrin.

Suggest a check with a vet?

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:25:01

Have taken another photo and I think it looks nearer being between her legs here.

emotionsecho Fri 31-Oct-14 15:26:20

Pass the brain bleach over here when you're done pleasegrin I did not expect to examining my girls bits today!

PitchSlapped Fri 31-Oct-14 15:26:39

Definitely a girl imo

emotionsecho Fri 31-Oct-14 15:27:40

I'll say girl after that photo.

spiderlight Fri 31-Oct-14 15:28:15

Yep, she's a girl.

Catsarebastards Fri 31-Oct-14 15:28:45

Oh yes it looks more like a girl in second photo. Ask the dog it's name- that might give a clue grin

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:29:16

I've looked at a few more pics on the Internet and although its not easy to tell I'm beginning to be more reassured that she's a girl.

She's been to the vet for both injections. I wasn't there though as the breeder did this. Not sure if the vet checks gender?

I'm not paying £30 for a vet appt to check now as I guess it won't make any difference. She's not going back even if she is a boy.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 31-Oct-14 15:30:26

Phew, glad more people agree.

She was just on my lap and belly up and I thought it looked a bit big. And the hair sticking out is just like the tuft of hair my boy dog has on the end of his willy.

Girl dog I am fairly sure .
