We were just told that the puppy we were purchasing has dropped only one testicle.  He would be 8 weeks old on 12/27.  Should we be concerned since he was the select breeding dog?  Should most dogs drop both at the same time or is it too early to be concerned?

I've heard this is dangerous so I would contact your vet right away. Tanisha

We purchased a four month old male yorkie two years ago. The breeder told us that she had kept him to breed, because he was so small, but, would sell him if we really wanted him. He had been to the vet numerous times for check-ups before we purchased him.
Upon evaluation by our family vet, she informed us that he had only dropped one testical and that it would be smart to get him neutered soon because it could lead to cancer. We tried to contact the breeder numerous times but were ignored. But, we were already close to the little pup by this time.
We kept him and decided not to get him neutered right away. We are keeping a VERY close eye on his "problem" and he is doing great. No signs of cancer. Oh, and he's already helped to produce 2 litters of perfectly normal and beautiful little pups.
