Mine is now a year and it's only in the past few months that he has actually come up and solicited scratches (on his back legs and tail). He doesn't really care for hugs or head pats still. As a younger pup, he didn't even do the lean and rub (think cat) that he does now. I'm hoping that when he gets a bit older, it will grow. Some dogs are more affectionate than others. That's just their personality. Doesn't have anything to do with their bond to the owner. And sometimes they grow into it.
