Spayed dog doing some sort of wierd thing!

Post by Scott and Joni Muelle » Thu, 27 Mar 1997 04:00:00



We have a 2 year old springer / lab mix.  She has begun in the last 2-3
months this humping thing where she sits as far back on her haunches as
she can and holds her paw against herself and humps - often continuing
the humping action after she is standing.  We have had her glands
squeezed, but she comes home and does it the same day.  She has been
spayed.  I do not know enough about dogs, I guess, to know if this is
normal for a female - spayed - dog.  She does not seem comfortable at
all when she is doing this.  We will be getting her to the vets AGAIN
soon - unless someone can offer some reasonable explanation - and tell
us this is normal.  The poor girl is getting self-conscious about this
also.

Thanks!

I don't know if it is 'normal' but my 2 year old spayed lab humps couch
cushions.  She quite deliberately rearranges the couch until she get one
lined up.  She usually does this if she is e***d from playing or had just
come in from outside.  
She will also drape her hind leg over your foot. She doesn't actually hump
feet but it does seem to be a domimance thing.

I have caught our two and a half year old spayed border collie cross
humping our ten month old intact male doberman puppy.  Quite a sight, he
has about twenty pounds and several inches on her, but I guess she is
determined to show him who is boss.  He is pretty good natured about it,
just kind of looks around with a real puzzled expression on his face
until I tell her to knock it off.

This doesn't sound like humping. It sounds more like scooting, which
means she has an irritated rear end and is trying to rub it on the
ground or floor. There's more than one cause for this but the most
common is impacted ***sacs. Have your vet check her-if that's what
it is it's making her unconfortable and the vet can help make her feel
better.

Strange. Have you had a stool analysis done for internal parasites?
It may sound weird, but round worms in Luke caused some pretty strange
behavior at one time.
