Default At what age do testicles descend?

Ive read as much as 4 to 6 months. And as little as 8 weeks? My pup is 8 weeks and his testicles have not descended yet. But I think it is too early..

What do you all think?

I come from the school, if they don't have them at 8 weeks they won't, but your pup may have them, you just haven't found them, they are not always completely descended, however, you should be able to palpate them. Have your vet check.

When people talk about pups not getting them until 5 or 6 months, I think they are just not into the scrotum, but they need to be descended, as the cord length is going to determine if they come down, and AKC requires both testicles to be descended into the scrotum.

Good luck...

I do see the testicles. The size of two grapes. But they have not descended. They appear like two little bumps.

At 8 weeks that's probably as "descended" as they'll get - if you can see them both all the time, I wouldn't worry about it; they'll "hang down" more as he gets older. When people talk about testicles not descending in puppies, they mean you can't see them at all, unless you push them into position (if you can; sometimes they're not even descended far enough for that).

Yes, if you see them, and they are just not into a sac, don't worry, that will come with development

Our "Flash" is 10 weeks old and still hasn't descended. The vet told us they might still drop but otherwise we will have to have them surgical removed.

If you can see them, then they are descended, Flick's were at 8 wks, one of the first things I checked actually
