Call your vet--pus means an infection, and it needs to be treated.

I took Cody in to see the vetwhen he was about 4 months because he had the same issue, the vet said it was normal and it would start to get less and less once he was neutered.

If it is just a small amount, it is probably just smegma. You can look it up to see if that's what it is. :thumbsup:
My boys had this when they were pups, but I haven't seen it since.

thanks for the feed back guys...will do...

I know the substance can possible be an infection but what or why would a green substance come out if there not neutered?

It is common for males to have a small amount of discharge.

"Preputial discharge" is any substance flowing from the prepuce, which is the fold of skin that covers the penis. Often, licking at the prepuce/penis accompanies the discharge, so the terms interchangeably.

Preputial discharge may consist of blood, urine or pus. Having a small amount of whitish-yellow discharge called "smegma" is normal for a dog. Smegma is the normal sloughing of cells and accumulation of debris.

But smegma also provides nutrients for bacterial growth.
If your dog's discharge is really greenish in color, and you've never noticed discharge of that color before, it's likely the discharge is caused by bacteria, and dog has an infection which can be easily cleared up with an antibiotic.

You'd need your vet to confirm the possibility of an infection, and to provide medication.

Regarding the mounting behavior your neutered male dog sometimes displays: mounting isn't always sexual, it can also be a sign of dominance.
