Is it normal for the female dog's private part to protrude outward?

You didn't go into much depth as to when this happened or if it was always this way. Some female dogs have higher hormones and if not spayed (even sometimes if they are) they will give off an odor. It is called 'vagina' (so I found out from my vet LOL) and is much like a female's vagina would react to stimuli. Sometimes it may appear puffy and also female dogs can have some discharge. I have a Bichon Frise X and I notice this too. If in doubt it's best to speak with your vet and let her have a look. It's generally quite normal.
