Hi friends,

Our 7 month old black and tan little man Corby has been exhibiting very strange behavior with circling his front paw around his back one while licking the floor (see attached video although in this video he doesn't lick the floor). He has done this every so often since we brought him home at 8 weeks, but over the last month is has gotten more and more frequent. He was neutered at 6 months (not sure that has any relevance) - has anyone else seen their Frenchie do this? Our 5 year old Frank never did so I'm not sure if it's a Frenchie thing or just a Corby thing.

Hi -- I can't get the video to play. My first guess would be does he have a tail pocket?

He does - we wash him nightly but have an appt with our vet to have it checked for infection /irritation.

Too bad the video wouldn’t play - our breeder thinks it could be him “strumming his banjo”😳
