Sin does it too.

Schaferhunde Siberian Cat
Many of them like water. They will drop their toys in water. Some even like swimming, & going in the shower with you. There very dog-like. My cat will greet me when I come home, & will watch me leave. The other Siberian cats I know do the same thing.

Courtney The leaning I have seen Dobermans do this. We had a few Dobermans in class. They would lean with what seemed like their whole body weight into their owners. It always made me laugh

Castlemaid Rottweiler: Grumbling/Growling when they are happy and content. Leaning into you, sitting on your feet.

wolfy dog Sight hounds' subtle gestures. Instead of barging into you for attention they quietly position/park themselves next to you to "give you the opportunity to pet them".
Borzoi and Collies: blowing in their cheeks when they greet or check you out, it makes me melt.

LaRen616 My Dalmatian crosses his paws and so does his littermates. They make grunting/moaning noises that sound very similar to growls and they smile with their teeth so they look like they are angry. They also drool!!!!

ChetsDad Our vizsla crossed his paws like that too and held his head high like he was a classy fellow. Which he was. They other thing he always did, and I've seen others do this as well, is make this sound when they play that I can only describe as a vizsla "roo". Absolutely hilarious.

Quirks common to other breeds?

GSD: head tilt

Husky: crossed paws. Trust me, I've asked about this quirk on my husky forum and was delighted by the number of pictures and responses.

Do you know any quirks common to other dog breeds?
