|The iggy we're fostering will sometimes lift his leg but usually he does a sort of modified squat--not exactly like a girl dog, but kind of leaning into the ground. He also declines to mark as frequently as Monty and Livy, usually only peeing once on a walk (if he needs to; sometimes T won't pee at all.) Lately, however, he's been lifting his leg a *little* more often and marking a *little* bit more than usual. He doesn't really hit his belly, though.
T is 5 years old (well, he will be--his birthday is in five days) and was neutered as a puppy. He was raised around full-size Greys, mostly female (I think.) He has some "issues" (a little anxiety &c) but for the most part he's pure, loveable iggy. I don't know why he pees the way he does. I only know it's kind of cute.
(Monty and Livy are lean, mean, peeing machines. They pee on EVERYTHING when we take them out, probably because there are so many other dogs in our apartment complex and our boys have to "one up" the other pups pretty frequently. They're committed leg-lifters. Monty was also neutered as a young dog, and he's about two years old. Livy wasn't neutered until recently, and he's middle-aged--just a little older than T.)
So...to answer your question...I don't know!
