It may happen, it may not. Rushie lifts his and pees all over his front leg. Then he jumps on me with his wet front leg!!! He lifts it on posts, on the lawn chairs -- and he is tall enough to get it on the seat, on dog houses, on cots, on every last item even the electric fence unit.
Cochise, my old Sibe, hoisted his leg soooo high he was almost vertical...then squirted straight down so he was marking about 2 in off the ground (if that) So much wasted effort!
Da Vinci, my 1st Irish Wolfhound, did the horse steeetch with a twist. He'd just barely lift his back leg as he peed. He was actually considerably more dominant than Cochise, but not nearly as political, & not at all rank driven.
Sam, 9yo spayed GSD(previously bred), currently the alpha canine, only squats. Spanky, 3.5yo spayed(never bred) American Bulldog, both squats & lifts her leg. Djibouti, 6mo GSD(intact) still squats. He fully expects to take over the world so I'll be interested to see if leg lifting manifests, or if he just gets political.
