You may be able to see a spay scar or feel the scar of a spay. Your vet should be able to tell you based on characteristics of your females vulva. The vulva of a spayed dog tends to be smaller than an unspayed female. Or you can wait and if the dog doesn't go into heat in the next 6-8 months then she is most likely spayed.

Hope this helps.
