|Usually you will notice that males have no testicles and females have a scar on the abdomen. But this is not confirmation of either. In males, there are conditions where the testicles never descend or never develop properly (cryptorchidism/monorchidism). The easiest thing to do is to hound the people you got the pups from, those who claim the pups have been neutered, and get the paperwork or find out the info about what vet performed the surgery so you can get the paperwork from them.
In male dogs, monorchidism/cryptorchidism is relatively rare, but does happen! If you can't get proof from the people you purchased/adopted the pups from, usually a vet exam is required in order to obtain a "certificate" of sterility (for licensing purposes, mainly).
