|Liesje||Agree that having produced it does not mean the breeder or bloodlines are bad, but IMO the breeder should have known and said something. I'm not sure what the discount should be (not real familiar with this condition), but it should have at least been disclosed. The breeder should check males before they leave. I always ask just to make sure.|

I don't think anyone is suggesting this breeder is not reputable because they produced a puppy who may have a retained testicle. As above noted, it does happen to even the best of breeders.
It simply should have been disclosed to the OP and decisions made with all the information provided.

Even reputable breeders sometimes get male puppies that have an undescended testicle. I don't think that makes an irresponsible breeder.
Not disclosing it was not right. I was told about it beforehand. It's written in the contract and I was told not to breed him. The retained testicle did not bother me. I'm not going to show or breed him.

|my boy diesel||well one could be reputable and not responsible|

|huntergreen||i would question that this is a "reputable" breeder.|

|my boy diesel||
the problem with undescended is the spermatic cord itself is too short and since that is the case it wont come down no matter what u do
this problem is genetic and can be inherited so dogs like that should never be bred

My golden retriever had an in descended testicle. I knew of this though. It never came down. He was just neutered at 2 years old. The surgery was a nightmare. I believe dr messed up. He ended up with 2-3 surgeries and laser. It's a pretty common surgery but I find out afterwards the chances of cancer only increases 1/2 percent if I left him alone. I wish I did. But the vets pushed it. I would call the breeder ASAP
