Hello, Juanita

It varies a little from dog to dog. The normal is 8-12. With 10 as the average. Larger dogs tend to have 10-12, and smaller breeds lean more towards the 8. Any number though in between that is normal.

Males have them too.

Let me know if you have any other questions about the mammary gland structure.
