Q. Basket hound-testicles are stretched and sag to the ground

A. It is possible that due to your dog's lo stature, the testicles may appear to hang lower as well. However, if you've noticed a sudden change in their appearance, see swelling, growths or they are painful, then it is best to seek veterinary care. Stopping your dog from licking or chewing at them with the use of an Elizabethan (cone) collar until you can get to the vet is best.
