I contacted the breeder and she said they were both down at one point and that they can go up then down again as they grow..is this accurate?

Read the link I provided

I don't think so. After 10-12 weeks they should be permanently down. Do you have a vet's statement that both testicles were down?

My vet said plenty of dogs don't drop one or both until over 6 or 7 months.

I had the same issue with my dog. The breeder said that both were down at 6 weeks of age. I noticed around 9-10 weeks that only 1 was down. He's 1.5 years old now and the other testicle still hasn't come back down.

It's unfortunate because I didn't want to neuter him, but have no choice now. I plan on having it done at 2-2.5 years old.

From the research I've read and looked at, it's possible for one to slide down and back up (or both) but at 8-9 weeks if both aren't able to at least get down there, then they won't.
They could slide back up at 8-9 or 10 weeks but if they can make it down, they should both stay down by a certain age.
And that if one hasn't come down - at all (not able to be physically moved into position) - then it probably won't.

The problem with undescended testes is that the spermatic cord is too short and that's why it can't come down.

I looked at my contract ... he was sold to me as a "pet" with no guaranty regarding testicle. It only said if he had a genetic disorder she would replace him. Not wanting anything from her anyhow, I'm just bummed I don't have the option to do conformation shows or breed him.

It's a good idea to notify your breeder anyway, since she may want to reconsider breeding to that particular stud, especially if more than one pup was born crypt- or monorchid.

My boy had both down at 7 weeks, I felt them, they were there. At 9 weeks when he came home neither was there. We could find them in his abdomen. He is now 3 years old and they never came down. He has matured like a normal, testosterone filled male. Other full males do not like him.
Everything I read and everyone I talked to had stories of them coming back down, even as late as a year old which made me really hopefull. But they never came down and he will be neutered in the new year.

It would make sense, I guess -- if the cord is too short, the bigger the dog gets, if it doesn't also grow, they're not going to make it back down.

All you can do is wait and see.if they were both down at one point then totally possible they will come down again. Confused how you were planning on both breeding yet neutering by 2 years of age?
