    Uh... what a subject!!!

    Ender's don't HANG but there is a bulge and you can feel them with little to no effort. He's 17.5 weeks. I know this probably doesn't help at all but that's all I got.

    I guess they'd really start to hang when he hits puberty!!

    Don't worry if you can feel both of them. Sometimes they go back and forth when they are younger.

    Tasman only has 1 that dropped yet and he is 15 weeks old today.
    The Vet said that if we would like him neutered at 6+ months he would first have to do a check to see where the other one is hanging around...

    So Does that mean that one can palpate them at 6 weeks or do they start to hang at 6 weeks?? Descending simply means that they are at their place ie. the scrotal sac but at what age do they start to hang?

    why does it matter if they hang? Usually that happens when they get bigger...and that comes with age. they won't drag on the ground for pete's sake. They will be tight to the body too...even on show dogs.
