Hmm, maybe he's resource guarding, remove all toys from the floor, tell him to go lay down. Trotted off, laid down for 5 seconds, came back, lifted his lips. We continued this cycle of me assuming he was upset about something... until he PLAYBOWED and lifted his lips. "Ooooh, you want to wrestle!" Got off the couch and did my generic wrestle-initiate pose which is the feet spread, hands in the air like you're a monster pose... He was so excited that he figured out how to ask for what he wanted that he did zoomies after playbowing up and down the living room
Sounds to me like someone has a smiler! It can be a bit hard to interpret at first. I wonder if that's why his original owners said he had aggression issues (I think you mentioned that was one reason he was surrendered?) He sounds like such a sweet boy

Edited: wanted to add - my first boy was a rescue and a smiler. Part of why he was given to the vet who used him as a blood donor for a time is that he was "aggressive". He was only trying to play and was soooo happy that he'd smile.

My old boy Rex (RIP) would smile as per previously mentioned Dobies. He would also lie with his legs crossed.

Axel is approx 4.5 mths. I think he might be part duck, part kamikaze pilot. Axel loves the water, I have never had another dog like him. He has a wading pool which he gets into. He will then put his entire face in the water like a duck would trying to catch something. It is amazing.

When he is particularly excited to see me he runs at full speed toward me and jumps up approx 1 metre away with his entire body airborne at me. I think he expects me to catch him, he is dreaming! Axel is a big boy for his age, there is no way I can catch a canine torpedo.

Odin shares the same goofyness and quirks as many of your dogs. I find it so funny that the shared attributes are a breed thing. Are other dog breeds like this?

Odin's zoomies are hilarious, we have a fairly small back yard, but that doesn't stop him from burning up energy. He goes out there and does incredibly fast, tiny littler circles then abruptly stops and does it the other way. He got so dizzy once he went to run inside immediately after doing his zoomies that he missed the door entirely and ran into the side of the house. He also makes great "love noises" when he settles on a couch in a comfortable way, or someone starts petting him in the right spot, or, of course, when he is allowed to sleep on our bed with us for a few hours on the weekend. To cute!

How silly is your doberman?

Gemma (9 months) also likes to cross her feet when she lays down. That's if she even stays up right. In OB class when we put the dogs in a down and the instructor is giving a lengthy speech (all of 30 seconds) She tends to flop over on her side and lay there looking at me like now what, I'm bored. While all the other dogs are nicely down at attention.

She loves zoomies

She does this thing to me whenever she can where she shoves her nose between my knees and quickly starts shaking her head back and forth while moving forward and pushing up so that I'm force to spread my legs or she would wind up in my crotch. Once my legs are spread she steps between and expects butt or head scratches (depending which way she's approached). And then for me to bend over and give her a full body hug. If the hug is not long enough and I walk away she does it all over again.

He does like to "smile" and it was hard for me to tell the two apart for a while. He does give actual serious "BACK THE EFF UP" faces for some things that we're still working on, like during his temper tantrum last night over being put in his crate for the night (nevermind that I'd spent 5pm-10pm outside with him bouncing around, nooooo) or when he's resource guarding. My roommates are still trying to figure out whether he's smiling or giving them a serious warning so if teeth come out they just give him space- better to ignore a smile than to get bit because a snarl wasn't considered. The aggression concerns were somewhat legitimate- he is a bit reactive to pain/fear stimuli and he's associated certain things (crate, super high value items like bones) with it partially (I believe) from treatment from his past owners. The difference is that they provoked him into bites and then terrorized him over it, and I'm doing my best to avoid that response in the first place.

BUT ANYWAY, that's more or less why I wasn't sure what the teeth were about. He's a sweetheart and a total goober and it breaks my heart to know that someone damaged part of his mind that way. He's super smart and comes up with new ways to infuriate me every day! And then we cuddle on the couch and he licks my face until it's smooth.

Ripley can be rather silly. But not in a very explainable way... he's just kind of a goof, and watching him everyday he really doesn't take a whole lot seriously. Keira, OTOH, thinks nothing is a joke haha. She's super serious and doesn't do many silly things unless she's in a particular mood. The silliest thing she does is roll around on her back and mouth your hand/arm in gentle play - that's how she likes to play. And she has this cute little happy dance that is hard to explain, but it's super cute and goofy.

Great thread!

1. Nissa becomes "invisible" when she doesn't want to get scolded.
2. Doesn't make eye contact either when she's in trouble.
3. Arkus has instant zoomies after he poops. Or he turns into a bucking Bronco.
4. When Nissa doesn't want to move, she turns into a 1,000 lb sack of potatoes.
5. Nissa exercises passive-aggressiveness when trying to snuggle with our MinPin by slowly backing herself into the bed, butt-first. Again, no eye contact to minimize perceived said-aggressiveness.
6. Ditto to the 1/2 sit on furniture.
7. Nissa's lady-gas surprises her. So, she gets up and walks away refusing to admit it was her.
