I don't know, I have no problem with returning the pup right off as it has a show fault, and is not going to get better according to the vet, and the dog was purchased as a show dog.

But, there are so many things that might make a puppy not suitable for the show ring as it matures. I would think one buys any show dog with the understanding that they may not turn out, and have a plan for them if that is the case.

Lots of info on the condition and some graphic pictures (in case you are squeamish)..

Cryptorchidism and Undescended Testicles - all you need to know.

The article says the trait is autosomal recessive in dogs. Is this known for sure? This would mean both parents carry the gene for the production of cryptorchidism if a male puppy has it. If it is the goal to remove the trait from the breed then neither should be bred again as they can pass the gene along, though sometines unexpressed due to recessive nature. If it is autosomal recessive, then it seems breeding a cryptorchid or possibly cryptorchid dog is perhaps not a good idea as the gene is definitely going to pass to offspring and would then proliferate this gene in the genetic pool.

I heard somewhere that there was rethinking on the genetics of cryptorchidism. I haven't come across any info as to that yet.

Seltzer, I so agree, hardest thing to return this pup, and I've never done it before, but there are so many things involved here, and at 12 weeks he will rehome perfectly. He learned lots in the 3 weeks I had him, enjoyed tremendous socializing and training. The testicles are a disqualifying fault. From the first I explained that was THE only fault I wouldn't deal with. If the bite goes bad later or an injury happens or development changes thing and a longer time has happened he would have stayed. This is my last pup that I plan to raise, after the demise of these 2 and the new pup I will only buy older dogs as I will be that much older and not interested in puppy stuff. So was very specific and spent over a year researching and planning. The breeder and I are still friends and she has actually pointed me toward another litter and highly recommended me to them. So we shall see.

I know, I understand you want a show puppy, and he is not at this point. And now is the best time to get him in a new home. I am sure the three weeks were probably a good thing too.

I hope there is a good pup in the litter you are looking at.
