Puppy has one testicle

My boy Apollo, is now 7 months old and still has only one testicle. anyone have info on how long it takes for the second one to drop? i have to have him neutered at 1 yr old and if the 2nd one doesnt drop, he has to have stomach surgery to locate the other testicle. any info on this would be appreciated. thanks

usually the testicles are in the scrotum by six weeks of age, and the inguinal ring starts to close around 16 weeks. while an occasional dog might have a retained testicle drop later than 16 weeks, it's not the norm and nothing i'd count on.
