17month GSD - Testicles have not dropped
Apologies if I have posted in the wrong discussion section. My dog is in good health and is now 17 months old. I have noticed (been noting for a while) that his testicles never dropped.
Should I be concerned about this? I have no intentions of breeding him. He is just a family pet.
All your advise is much appreciated.
You need to get them out!
Testicles are meant to be kept cooler outside the body :)

Booked him in for a check with the VET this coming weekend. Thanks for the response Maggie
Had him checked out and felt a bit stupid.....! His testicles definitely dropped and could not been seen because he such a hairy dog. All is fine. Vet said his weight / health / testicles are all fine.
LOL. Grim had tight up nubbins. Everyone thought he was neutered. Beau, OTOH ....
