Wild Wolf Zenna likes to hold your hand or arm in her mouth while she greets you, and wiggles her entire body so hard she stumbles sometimes! She also likes to pick up her food bowl and throw it around making extremely loud noises. If you tell her off for something, she grunts and air bites in your direction. Attitude!

Hunter "moos" when he is excited and wants to talk to you. He also slides between everyone's legs when he wants attention. Every night before bed, he will sit next to my hubby and just wants to hold hands for awhile before bed... it is really cute. DH will say "Can I get a goodnight paw?" and Hunter will put his paw in DH's hand or on his arm and they just stay like that for awhile. Hunter also thinks flies are enemy #1 - will put on his best defensive bark and try to kill flies.

Jakesworld Here's just an edit, we have a Shih tzu , maybe if I spelled it correctly I wouldn't get bleeped. Ha ha!

Jakesworld Jake loves to bring his squeaky toy right in your face and squeak-squeak-squeak! Never had a dog that actually liked to make the toys squeak before . Jake also has a set meal time ritual. He eats his food. Then goes and gets the cattledog's dish. (I take that away from him), then he picks up the chiuahua 'a empty dish ( then I take that dish) then he patiently waits and watches the ****zu finish eating. As soon as ****zus done, he picks up his dish...and I take it away before he sinks his teeth through it. We do this twice a day, every day. He does have many more quirks...after all, he's just a goofy teenager right now.

stmcfred Lola doesn't have many quirks, but she is still young. lol.

Her main thing is she has a spot on the couch that is "hers". If you sit there, she will jump on you until you move over.

When I put her in her crate at night, I have to tell her "bedtime,goodnight". If I don't say it she will bark about 5 minutes later.

Other than that I haven't noticed anything too quirky about her.

3GSD92_00_12 Gypsy has so many quirks, that I can't list them all. However, there are some that really stand out.
Example 1. She loves to run by my mom and when we are sitting on the couch. When Gypsy does this, the slipper that was on your foot is now in her mouth. She does drop it though.
Example 2. Gypsy loves to lean her butt towards me so that I may scratch it for her. This is a problem when I am sitting on the floor since she towers over me, so more than once she has basically sat almost on me.
Example 3. Her special free ear cleaning treatment. If you are bending down, be warned that Gypsy is obligated to stop by you and clean your ears out by her sloppy kisses, nevermind that she may also clean the top of your head, regardless if you have hair or if you are bald like my dad. Another warning, the special ear cleaning treatment may occur while you are driving and Gypsy is standing on the seat behind you.
Example 4. If you are walking in the hall way and Gypsy us in front of you, she will stop and plant her butt until you sternly tell her to move or you pet her because there is no way around her and she has tilted her head straight back.
Example 5. Gypsy has to "fuel up" before you take her for a walk. If my dad, my mom or I say "where is your leash" to Gypsy, she will immediately run to her food bowl and start chomping/ gobbling down her food.
Example 6. If she sits pretty ( her hind legs not sagging in a sit but straight, along with her back being straight) look out, she is going to toot. Like toot, toot, toot. Once in a while Gypsy does this she will turn and look like she is asking " Did I do that?".
Example 7. Gypsy will gladly lick the floor of my parents shower after my dad has finished taking his shower and has gotten out. She loves water, so that may be part of the reason.
Example 8. If you are like my mom and don't like your feet recieving a tongue bath, then do not leave them uncovered. Gypsy will gladly clean them for you.
Example 9. Gypsy likes to give me kissies, but will nibble on my ears where my earrings are. Good thing, my ears only have one ear piercing each.
Example 10. Gypsy loves to give a 360° sniff test whenever my mom and I come home from school and work or if my dad or I have gone to let our neighbors' dogs outside.
Example 11. Gypsy loves to be nosey. Especially, if we are out walking and we stop ti talk with neighbors or people we meet.
Example 12. Gypsy loves to sneak up from behind you and go between your leegs like she is a pony. She does this to my dad and I the most, but occassionally, my mom gets this special treatment.
Example 13. Gypsy likes to have her ears rubbed. She will start kicking her hind legs if you rub the tips of them really good.
Example 14. My mom, my dad or I can not get the hose out to water anything unless Gypsy gets to play in it or she is in the house. She loves water like a Labrador. Gypsy also has a hard tail like a lab, but she is 100% GSD.
I better stop there, because I know that I can go and on.

Msmaria Ever since Dex was a puppy, he would want to fall asleep with ur hand in his mouth. He prefers hands but a ball or toy will also suffice if no one is willing to" lend a hand."

AKIRA3 Akira will not eat out of her bowl.
Each meal is a courtship.
We bring the bowl to her, feed a few nuggets, she will gingerly take it, then look at us like" not this crap again."

After a few hand fed bits, THEN she will eat on her own.

Every-time we eat at the dining room table she will sneak under and lay there until the meal is done.

Every morning when she hears me stir, she comes and licks my neck and armpits until I get up.

CindyMDBecker BTW: it sounds way worse than it is ... Her bite is not a true attack. She sounds like a demon but sort of side swipes when connecting. She goes right back to her position on the couch & makes crazy "oof" sounds egging him on. It's more play than anything but she definitely thinks she's the boss.

CindyMDBecker When Garrison tried humping my crossed leg my little female terror, I mean terrier, flew off the couch & bit him. She is instant demon toward him & her bossy attitude escalates in a split second. Well he is a doof & has figured out he can get a reaction EVERY time he paws at my leg, sits against my leg, hooks on my leg as if he's going to hump. All the while turning to stare at her & without fail it provokes her. If she hasn't noticed within a few attempts he will walk UNDER my legs back & forth (very uncomfortable seeing how I don't have the flexibility for high straight leg lifts from a sitting position). THAT catches her eye & wham ... She has moves like Jimmy Superfly Snuka (80's wrestler ... Yikes!). I actually am humored he TRIES to get attacked. (sigh)
