|llombardo||Mine love hugs from me and family. Robyn doesn't bother with strangers anymore, big sign of maturity. She won't go after someone, she just isn't like she used to be. Midnite is still there. If he really likes you he will wrap both of his paws(while he is sitting) and hold onto you. He is a leaner too, but he doesn't look for it either, he just accepts it when offered.|

She will lean into a hug from a child but wiggles & dips out of any hug from an adult. Just depends on their personality. Every dog is different just as every person id different.|

Both of my girls crave being hugged. They seek to be held close and spoken to in their ears quietly. One of the girls wakes me every morning and wont stop till she gets a huge dose of hugs and some belly runs. The outside girl wants to be hugged and held every time I go outside. She prefers the outside over the inside but still wants all of the same love and affection her sister gets indoors. So I would venture to say that they like and seek that kind of reassurance from the pack leaders that they are still part of the pack. It is kind of a human butt sniff and lick to them...

|Daisy||Mine is very affectionate, but does not like to be hugged or in any way have her head constricted. Now, I had a collie who loved hugs, and he would stand up on his hind legs and put his front paws on our shoulders and hug us.|

Lisl is indifferent to hugs...unless she wants one. Then she's in your lap, crawling all over you, or laying on you.
She is really very affectionate, but will only do that with me. She's very aloof towards other visiting family members and strangers in particular.
Strangers and visitors don't get hugs.

Totally depends on the pup.
My girl needs to be in the mood, then she is the sweetest little thing.
My boy is a Huge Teddy Bear- all the time, thinks he is a 90 pd lap dog.

from us and strangers. when my GF an i hug one us can say
"family hug" and our dog walks between us and sits or he'll walk
back and forth between us.

|katro||Ralphie loves them and leans into them. And to solidify my status as a crazy dog lady, I say "Hugs not drugs, Ralphie!" when I hug him.|
