Default 15 week pup with only one testicle dropped

Is this normal... what ate the chances the other will or will not drop?

When we got our boy at 6 wks which is too early to be leaving momma and siblings the breeder told us that he only had one that had dropped and that the vet said that the other most probably would come down and stay and it did. I don't know about a pup that is 15 wks old, I would think that it should be down to stay by then but I do not have any knowledge to back that up. You may type in the search area in the black strip at the top and find some posts that refer to this. Or hopefully someone who has been there or done that will come on and offer you some advice. Good luck.

I have had 2 males with this problem and neither one of them had the other one come down. The boy I have now is 9 months old and if it isn't down by a year, it won't be coming down. He will be neutered.

I have an almost 5 month old pup whose still hasn't dropped. Vet and breeder both said we still have a while that we can wait to see.

We have a rescue and usually by 8-10 weeks both have dropped. The fact one is down and the other isn't is an indicator the other won't likely drop.

Can you feel it and sort of push it down into place? If not, then it's probably a done deal and it's not coming down.

I remember the breeder mentioning something about undescended testes.. but I'm pretty sure it was just a general statement about things to keep an eye on... other than not being able to do conformation shows, the risk of cancer and it being irresponsible to breed him.. what other effects, if any, will this have? Does the breeder have any responsibility here? Is it even worth mentioning? I'm not really worried about money, I just want to know what is customary.
Fyi, I was planning on neutering him after the age of two... I was interested in conformation, but much more interested in schutzhund.

Some folks guarantee the testes will descend, if the dog is sold as a show quality and/or breeding quality dog.
I don't know what your agreement states. You should refer to it.
