The testicles do not go through the inguinal ring to place themselves in the sacks until the fifth day; the definite position is acquired by the seventh week, but should not alarm us until the fifth or sixth month. If one of the two testicles has not descended when the puppy reaches its adult age, it is precise to remove them, but there is a risk of tumors in the intra-abdominal testicles.
