What do you think the following behaviours might mean?
1. When we wake up/go to sleep.. or when the dog is even a little bit excited (we come home or we are about to leave).. he walks behind us and with his paws he tries to "get" our ankles. His nose is very low so at first I thought he was trying to bite our ankles (freaked me out lol) but now I know he is just using his paws and his nose. When I wear thongs he actually manages to slide his paw into the back of my thongs! It still makes me uneasy and I walk veryyyy slow when he does it or try to get him infront. What does it mean when he does it?
2. When Hooch wakes up and stretches he always puts one of his paws on my foot. So he stretches while his paw is ON my foot. all... the...time... lol
I dont have much experience with dogs but I grew up with a german shepherd who has never done anything like this.
Quick background - Hooch is a boxer x beagle who was rescued 2 weeks ago from the pound where he was in a cage for at least 2 weeks.
.... if you have a dog with weird behaviours - would love to hear about it. It is so cute yet so curious!
