Is this all pretty much a poodle thing? I have had other breeds that were neutered or spayed but not at such an early age. I even had a female rottweiler that would squat and then lift one leg ever so slightly - just as LostNJax described her male.

My parents male pug wasn't neutered until he was 5, and he goes back and forth between squatting and lifting his leg. My mom's female pug on the otherhand balances herself on her two front legs and pees... it's really a sight to see.

I have a 2 year old intact GSD that squats to pee and lifts to mark. He will lift his leg and mark just about any vertical object, but when he really has to go, he squats.

My 12 year old Whippet mix always squats, never lifted his leg...my vet says some are just that way, nothing wrong with them...

My three year old GSD does not raise his leg he just sort of stretches out and raises his tail I am really glad because he doesn't go around peeing on our patio furniture or stuff like that I think it is a huge huge plus

My JRT wasn't neutered until he was around 4-5 years when I got him as a rescue and he goes back and forth between squating and lifting...I think it depends on how bad he's got to go and the availability of a shrub/tree
