Those terms describe the actual penis of a dog, for the most part, still in the preparation phase. (That’s the fur area you used to think was a dog’s penis in your childhood.)
“Red rocket” or “lipstick” is a fairly fitting term: a dog’s erection is usually pink to red in color and is also firm. It is shaped similar to a rocket tip or lipstick, hence the nickname for a dog’s penis.

Other times you might see a male dog’s lipstick
