Yes, they can get breast cancer. Is your dog spayed? That is one big advantage of spaying - helps to cut the "female" cancer risks tremendously. Dogs can get many non-cancerous masses...the only way for you to be sure is to have the vet take a look. Good luck...I know masses can be very scary to find.
