Male GSD question
 
At what age should a male GSD's testicle's drop?

My 13 week old just had his first check with my vet and they are there. Since my breeder did not say anything when I picked him up, I'm assuming they were at 8 weeks.

If your puppy has not dropped his testicle by 6 or 7 months, then he probably won't.

Usually by 6 weeks both can be detected. However, they have until 6 months to drop.

I want them there by 8 weeks. I have heard they can drop later, but have never found that to be the case.

If I'm buying a male I want them there at 8 weeks, don't want to have to wait and worry and then possibly deal with sending a puppy back.

My boy is 16 weeks and has only one dropped. Vet said to neuter him as soon as possible.

You can wait until he is mature to neuter him. The friends who have dealt with this just waited until they did the dog's OFA's. They also worked with vets that removed only the retained testicle leaving the other. Doesn't need to be right away.
