Will a female dogs nipples stay big once they have a litter?

I want to get a female dog but I don't like how their nipples very very big once they have a litter. My question however is, once they have a litter and then are spayed, do their nipples still stay big?

I am looking at this dog and wondering if her nipples are going to always stay that big?

Who knows? Usually in dogs that have not had pups, they tuck back up real nice in about 3 months or so (after the beginning of a heat cycle).

And jaded, as your girl ages, each heat cycle she has drastically increases her risk of pyometra. I've done sooooo many emergency spays to remove a uterus that absolutely FULL of green pus that it makes me sick. And we've only saved 1 dog in the 5 years I've been doing this. By the time one notices that their bitch is ill & a vet diagnoses pyometra, it's usually too late to save her. I'd hate for you to lose your beloved pet at a not quite so old age.
