Female Dog's Chain of Breasts

Besides all the reproductive organs that I've already mentioned in detail, the female dog has a chain of eight to ten breasts, distributed in pairs down the ventral region, from the chest to the groin. The lack of one or various breasts is relatively frequent; however, it does not present much of a problem. The mammary glands are not more than some skin glands that have suffered important modifications in order to be able to produce milk. The nipples are generally shorter and have in between 6 and 12 tiny holes that allow the milk to pass through. During the period immediately before birth and nursing until weaning, the breasts increase enormously in size to then later return to their natural state six or eight weeks after having finished the weaning period.
