Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: No testicles.   Sat Dec 19, 2009 4:42 am

Kodi, my siberian husky, does not have his "testicles" yet. and he's about 13 or 14 weeks old. I'm really concerned, because i know if i want to get him fixed its going to be a more major surgery. And, if i want to breed him, he will probably be sterile.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Sorry, I don't know much about this but replying anyway. I've read everything from 10 weeks to a year for them to drop depending on which source you trust. If it is a problem, a castration is probably needed as this trait should not be passed on. Either way, what I've read leads me to believe the surgery is not much more complicated than a normal neuter. Oh, and my dogs are all rescues so I'm not very up on the puppy issues.

┬┐Who'd a thunk someone else was on here at this time of night?

haha.. well im a teenager, so i have nothing better to do. plus my best friend is on her dog forums, so i thought i would check mine out, then we got talking about kodi's condition and i thought i would ask

and i've also heard that up to a year it is still possible. but that anytime after that it is probably a lost cause. so i'm thinking ill give him til he's a year old, and if they havent, im just going to get him fixed and not worry about it. even though he has champion on both his mom and dads side, and it would be awesome to show him and him get his championship, its just not worth the trouble. (:

thanks so much for your help

I would ask his breeder then. They should have a better idea of the time frame and "breedability" after a certain point. Also, the other more knowledgeable folk should be around later tomorrow. They'll say stuff I don't think of.

... and welcome to the forum! I was just perusing all the stuff I missed all day.

I would suggest talking to a vet just to be sure. I am not really sure on the time frame, but I have heard if the testicles develop in the abdominal and never drop it can cause serious health problems, higher risk for cancer being one. If one testicle drops but not the other the dog is still fertile but like Harrise said you would probably not want to breed a dog with this issue because it is genetic. Do a search for cryptorchidism and you should be able to find a lot of info about it.
