yeah some new vets might have overlooked something. possible one testicle descended and the other didnt and the vet just surgically removed one, so he still has one. i have heard cases of neutered dogs that hump and do everything a unneutered dog does because the vet only removed the skin part. that's why it's better to find a good vet to do the job or wait a little later.
Our puppy just got neutered, his one testicle was way up in the cavity, so it was a more invasive surgery. I would check with your vet to see if he did take two testicles out. if not get it out, because if the testicle stays up in the cavity it could turn tumorous.
Our Lab tries to hump certain dogs, but i think it is to show who is in charge, not a sexual thing.
Humping is not necessarily sexually related, despite what many people think. It's much more often dominance related, especially in altered pets and female dogs. Also, erections have to do with excitement and bloodflow. Nearly every neutered dog will get hard when he's excited, regardless of the cause of the excitement. If it is sexually related, it can take up to 2 months for the sex hormones to leave the body.
REgarding it looking like he has two testicles.. How long has it been since he was neutered? When male dogs are neutered, there's still some fluid/tissue left in the scrotum, and especially immediately after the neutering, it will look like they still have something in there even when there's nothing there. Usually within a month or two, the scrotum will shrivel up to a flap of skin. Some dogs, ths flap of skin is bigger than others.
Only an idiot of a veterinarian wouldn't remove two testicles IMHO. If he didn't find both in the scrotum I know mine would ccall me and say "Look your dog only had one descended, we're going to have to find the other one in his body cavity for his own safety".

please don't jump down my throat, gee!!!!!!!!!! from what i just read i would never get my chi/neauter this just gave me goose bumps. he's just gonna have to hump on his stuff animal ms.pooky until i find him a little mate .
To castrate a male dog means to actually remove the testicles. The testicles are the main source of testosterone production, and testosterone is the hormone that has to do with reproduction, aggressive or roaming behavior and prostate and hernia problems. The testicles reside in a sac called the scrotal sac. We open the sac, remove the two testicles and close the sac. So you still see the sac, and many people are concerned that right after surgery the pets still look the same, but the sac is now empty. We leave the sac so aesthetically they look nearly the same.
teacup you shouldn't breed dogs because your dog humps things. i hope you are joking. 4 MILLION HEALTHY DOGS AND CATS ARE PUT TO SLEEP EACH YEAR BECAUSE THEY ARE DUMPED IN THE POUND. I seriously hope you are just kidding.
Minniyar is right. I have a spayed female that humps, and a neutered male that humps and a 7 week old puppy that humps everything he comes in contact with. They are all just being dominate. It is nothing sexual at all.
I've not been around dogs for the most part of my life, so not really familiar with what it SHOULD look like after neutering. I recently adopted an 18 month old min pin and he has been nuetered and he has no balls at all! Are they supposed to get rid of them completely? I thought they just take the "stuffie stuff" out and leave the rest or whatever?
Uh I'm not sure what you're asking here. Neutering means castration, castration means removing the testicles (or balls, as they're more crudely refered to). What other 'stuffie stuff' would they be removing? As I stated earlier, in some dogs the scrotal sack is more pronounced and obvious.
To add to what Minniyar stated, sometimes after a dog has been neutered their scrotal sac may be swollen and feel alittle hard until it is completely healed. During healing it may appear that the testicles are still somewhat there because of the swelling.
lol, mafiaprincess, i just don't know what to do i'm scare to death when wer'e on the subject talking about getting my pet neutered , i'm so confused on this matter. first they say do it b/c of diesese,behavior, agressive , then they talk about after it's done . dogs not the same removing the sack one's up where's the other one the doc. took two only suppose to have taken one .etc if i had a tail like teacup i think i would be chaseing it right now. gee..........! if teacup thought i would do something like that to him he wuld be looking for my hubby.lol lol
i'm little bit serious,now what black hole was left wher'es there supose to be his skin,'' ugh'' see i could'nt handle looking at that. i wasnt' talking about letting teacup out roaming the streets and having unwanted puppies . i will mate him with my girlfriend chi/ keep reading bout what happens after it done, this is my opinion reg/ my dog.no neutering that's all.
Oh thats great to hear someone is afraid of neutering or afraid of hurting the pup's feelings so they are going to let in breed. That is crazy. Why would you even want to breed this dog. Because it has testicles no other reason. Just because you won't neuter your dog does not mean you should let your dog go breeding anything that looks cute. Give me a break.
my question to you .do you have any children's? beside dogs.this is not to offend you .all i'm saying this is my opinion, my dog .i respect everybody opinion when it comes to their dogs. who know i might change my mind later on after i keep reading about getting him neutered. the doc said. you need to have him neutered,or mate him. so that lead me to beleive if i mate him he won't have any problems later on.
Well, it is offensive that you apparently aren't learning much here from others except to be afraid for your dog, so therfore mate it.
Unless he is miraculous and beyond exceptional standard, we have enough bybs in the world. And choosing to mate him cause he humps or needs a girlfriends is crappy reasoning.. and would make you of byb quality.
