My girlfriend was looking to buy a male for her female but he only had one testicle. He is a year. What is the scoop with that and can he breed???
Knoledge is power and the only stupid question is the one you don't ask...

After a year of age its doubtful if the other testicle will drop. It is also a major genetic fault and should not be bred. Also. being that he only has one, chances are he might not beable to produce and breed sucessfully. That is not always the case, but a possibility.

He also needs to be neutered pretty soon. Cryptorchid dogs have 10 times the risk of getting testicular cancer so it's really a must that cryptorchid dogs be neutered.
Purchasing from backyard breeders, pet shops, and puppymills perpetuates the suffering of other dogs.
Educate yourself and buy from reputable breeders or rescue.
