Just like in humans, dogs mature at different times. I myself would wait a bit and see if anything changes. Six months is still young. I've read that you should really wait until almost a year. Major surgery is always a risk, and then scar tissue will form which will then affect digestion and many other things. Try looking up and reading about Holistic healing/rearing. Hope you find resolution for your concern soon.

Have you called Kim yet? Kim usually likes to hear (from what I've read anyway) about any physical issues with his dogs. That way he can review the breeding and determine if the parents are a potentially bad match.

Yes. Call Kim. Or email him. He will respond.

Sigh...I'm fully aware that I can call Kim and intend to do so. My question to this forum is: Has anyone had this issue with their American Indian dog?

I've been reading this forum for almost 7 years and have read through many of the old posts from even before then, and I don't recall ever seeing mention of undescended testicles. I would venture to say it's not a common issue, though perhaps Kim would be the only one who can confirm that with any real certainty. There are countless dogs that are sent to new homes who never do make it online to this forum.

I also didn't find anything in past posts when I was doing my initial research. I'll post more information after I hear back from Kim.

I heard back from Kim and he said that he has not heard of this happening to other AI dogs. Darmok will be going back to the vet in a couple a weeks and I'll speak to her more about this then.

Sorry you are worried about this....I do believe, however, like I've mentioned before, time will tell. All dogs are different, as are humans, and developement sometimes happens later in some, while others start earlier. I hope this happens for Darmok, as it would be a painful thing for him to have to go through this exploratory and removal surgery. Good luck....
