We have ongoing research on genetics of cryptorchidism (undescended testes) in dogs. At the moment we focus on Belgian Sheepdogs (Tervueren and Groenendael) and Border Collies but we might add more breeds in the future.


We welcome blood samples from cryptorchid dogs, especially from Belgian Sheepdogs and Border Collies.
