My Dalmatian's didn't drop either. He's getting neutered the 1st week of January, he will be 18 months old.

I'm glad his testicle dropped.
My dogs did not drop. It was in the abdomen. It was quite the surgery. Complete with allergic reactions to the stitches. That was when he was 13 months old. He is now 18 months. I think he is developing nicely.
My dog never tried to mark and still does not. He is 26 inches tall and about 75 pounds right now.

|Jwrobinett||Orion is just over 9 months now and at around 6-7 months the testicle ended up dropping by itself, my vet told me he wouldn't have even known had I not told him! He is just now starting to develop physically, his head is getting blocky, his chest is growing deeper, and his bark is loud and deep. He is right around 70 lbs, his dad was about 105lbs , mom around 85lbs. He is starting to mark, but is not lifting his leg, and he (unsuccessfully) attempted to mount a female in heat the other day, just wondering how much I can expect him to grow in length and height. Thanks!|

|Jwrobinett||Yeah I guess I just got lucky that it isn't stuck in his abdomen. He said that he could actually feel it, he just couldn't get it down in the sack|

I think it can take as long as up to 6-8 months for it to drop.My Dalmatian puppy has Cryptorchidism, his ball is in his abdomen. My Vet told me that I can wait to neuter him until he is 18 months old but then I have to neuter him because he will have a higher risk of cancer, he also said that the ball that didn't drop can become really hot while still in his body and it can cause other issues.

|Jwrobinett||So we just had our 10 week check up and he is very healthy and the vet said that he can feel both testicles but only one is going into the sack. He said that only time will tell if the other will drop. Other than that he is doing pretty well. He hates the crate but if I don't leave him in there he will pee and poop in the house.. He is being a little stubborn about potty training. Wish me luck! Thanks|

Glad to help, be sure to keep us updated. This forum loves pictures
And thank you! I'm sure Orion will be a beauty too

|Jwrobinett||Okay that helps! Right now I'm just praying that that thing drops! I didn't intend on a neuter until about 3 years old but I guess plans always change! Oh and Vagus, you have a gorgeous dog!|

jwrob he would be able to reproduce just like a regular dog even with 1 testicle and 1 retained
the risk of cancer rises sharply in the retained one
he will have testosterone even with the neuter although would be sterile if neutered and also less testosterone but there is some in the body
as others said puberty hits about 8 mos.
