Board Certified Surgeon and general bulldog vet

Hi there, we are excited to join the group and start meeting you all when we move to Portland next week! Our 9 month old pup Oswald is SO social and will be thrilled to meet new playmates :) We will be looking for a board certified surgeon to perform a dual cryptorchid neuter for Ozzy - 2nd attempt. We had surgery a few weeks ago after an ultrasound located the testes in the region of his prostate but even with a second doctor scrubbed in they were unable to locate and remove the testes. Our vet is very good and the clinic we go to in Seattle has a lot of experience with French Bulldogs, they have asked that when we find a board certified surgeon in Portland we have them call to discuss the first surgery before attempting to just go in. Can any of you recommend a AHAA surgeon with experience? We will also be needing a general vet and Ozzy is beginning to experience several of the typical issues; food sensitivities and breathing and stamina issues. He also has some bad odor issues that seem to stem from breath or saliva (not sure if this is common?). Also he is functionally deaf and his eardrums appear to either be deformed or have burst at some point - though there is no sign of trauma or infection. Needless to say- he could have some chronic mysterious health issues and I am hoping to find a vet that has experience with this breed who is not dismissive about non-life threatening chronic health issues. I believe in supporting a high level of wellness and quality of life rather than just doing what is necessary to stay moderately healthy. I don't have much patience for vets who don't have patience to answer questions and/or explain why they think actions are/are not necessary. We will also be looking for some training support if anyone has recommendations (group or private). Hope some of you can find time to reply :)
