My dog is lactating but not pregnant

I have had my little Chiuahuah/Rat Terrior mix dog(Shorty) going on 8 years now and she has begun to lactate and is not pregnant. Do you have any clue as to why?

Is she spayed? I know dogs can have phantom pregnancies - I think it's a hormone thing. Your vet can help if it continues.

if you think it's a possible false pregnancy then maybe this will help.
