They say that the retained testicle is actually not more prone to cancer, but detecting it in time, if it is retained is the problem. It should be no problem to wait until 24 months. Also, it still can drop into place. I would just wait and see. If it is still retained at two years neuter.
The only problem with retained testicles is that the condition is genetic, so the animal should not be bred as this is a disqualifying conformation fault that will be passed on. If you are not intending to breed the dog, then it should not prevent you from purchasing the puppy.
Yes, the neuter can cost a little more. As they are discounting the price, that's a wash.
