Default Early leg-lifters.

Bean hiked his leg (appropriately- I was walking him to potty) in front of my agility instructor tonight. Her eyes got huge. She asked how old he is- I said, five and a half months, but he's been lifting his leg since he came home as a tiny puppy.

She was momentarily speechless.

I know it's unusual, and I admit I'm kind of expecting him to start, like, humping everything he sees or marking everything, and so far he hasn't.

Anybody else had such an early leg-lifter? How did he turn out?

(I really wish I'd taken pictures of him lifting his leg when he was tiny, but I never managed to actually take any.)

Zander, Dante, and Goose all started lifting their legs round 7-8 months, I believe. Goose may have started closer to 5-6 months.

Fosters were a little different. Some of the boys came to us lifting legs, others didn't lift legs until they saw our boys do it, despite that they were anywhere from 1 year to 4 years old.

He is so darn cute!

I've never had a male puppy and none of my girls are leg-lifters really so no help there. Cookie has done the post-poop grass kicking thing since I met her though, at ~12-13 weeks. Kinda surprised me lol

Milo started at 5 months I think? Which was hilarious, because his legs were about 3 inches tall at that time.

Tucker was 3 months, maybe four. Around the same time he went from shy to aggressive.

I kept 2 male Basenji puppies from a litter 3 years ago. One of the boys started lifting his leg at 5 months which is extremely unusual in the breed. His brother, the dominant male, didn't start lifting his leg regularly until he was 2 years old. He started to become same-sex aggressive about that time. *sighs*

My sister recently obtained a tiny 4 month old Yorkie mix. The puppy was already lifting his leg when she brought him home.

IIRC, Blaze was young. He's still fine. No crazy humping. He does mark way more than I care for, but a good amount of watching will usually avoid any huge mishaps. lol
