Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand your 5-month old Rottweiler has an undescended testicle that you can push into the scrotum, but it will not stay there. In these situations. The testicle is considered a cryptorchid and my assumption is that it is actually in the "inguinal" region and not actually the abdomen. It would be unusual for it to be able to go back into the abdomen because there is a membrane that forms between the abdomen and scrotum that prevents passage back and forth of the testicle. The space in between the scrotum and the abdomen is the inguinal region. Dogs with undescended testicles are recommended to be neutered. If you are already planning on having him neutered then this placemeant should not be a problem for the surgeon. If you are wanting to keep him intact then It is sometimes successful for a surgeon to "pull down" the testicle and suture it to the skin. This approach can fail as well. These undescended testicles have a higher rate of tumors later in life, which is another reason to support neutering.
