I'm not sure if they recognize their own kind, but Eli definitely responds differently based on the size of the dog. He loves, loves dogs his size and does the whole run up in their face and run away game. He gets very aggressive by barking and lunging at larger dogs. I think it's a defense mechanism like "dude, don't get any closer." This happens mostly when we walk around the neighborhood and he sees strange dogs. In the park, where there are dogs of every shape and size, he seems much better with larger dogs. I'm not really sure why.
