This is my opinion as a veterinarian: if you bought the pup as a pet, retained testicles IMO are no big deal. At our practice, it is more expensive to neuter a male with retained testicles vs. testicles in the scrotum. Did you purchase the dog based on how much it will cost to neuter him? I wouldn't discount the dog because if it was sold as a pet, then it was to be neutered no matter what. I know Pointgold does not feel that way, and my mentor did discount or give some money towards the neuter... It will still be the wonderful dog you want. If you purchased the dog to show and breed, well that is another matter. I say, get the pup.
