Puppy's maturity

Our 18 week old puppy has only one testicle descended at present. Can anyone advise me how long it will be before the other testicle descends?

It might never descend or it might take a while yet. I think by 5-6 months it should have descended if it ever will, but I could be wrong on those numbers.

Can you feel the second testicle? Has it been down at all or has it stayed retained all this time? At 18 weeks of age, it is very possible that it may not ever descend. If it is right in the groin area, it won't be too much trouble to remove when it comes time to neuter, but if it up in the abdomen, it could require a bit more invasive surgery to remove it. What has your vet told you about it?
