This kind of green discharge from the prepuce (foreskin) of male dogs can actually be a normal finding called Smegma. It is much more common in intact males, and neutering will decrease the amount of smegma produced.

Sources indicate that if the green discharge has an odor, take the dog to the veterinarian. If the dog continues to lick his penis more than usual, take the dog to the vet. The size of the dog has a lot to do with the amount discharging. Remember that grass or a foreign material may have imbedded itself in the folded skin and cause irritation. The vet can find it better than you.
