My dogs have always seemed to love hugs too. I suspect it's a lot in how it's introduced and not forced on them in the beginning. Plus the personality of the dog. Sophie loves hugs like Henry. But I can see where kids hugging strange dogs or even their own that don't like it could end badly.

Scout and Truffles love hugs. Then we arrive home they both are so excited jumping up for hugs. When I hug Truffles she goes crazy licking my face. Scout likes to cuddle on the sofa with my husband.

The famous "Hallie Hug" my precious Hallie girl gave me all the time. I will now tell Sophie "give me a Hallie hug" and she throws her head over my shoulder like this too. Kind of spooky. I love it. Both would give a big sigh....

I got and gave "Dober-hugs". My beloved Fritz would stare deep into my eyes, I'd give him a huge I Love You hug, he'd run in circles around the dining room table and come back for more.

Rocky is not to crazy about hugs or a lot of petting. We had noticed it but I've not seen anything like this that backs it up. He goes nuts when we get home and seems to like it then, but in normal situations he likes his space. If he's lying on the floor and I lay down beside him he'll get up and walk away.

At his first day of puppy school the first thing the trainer said when she knelt down to him was, oh he's shy!!! We don't know if he'll grow out of it but she just suggested we introduce him to as many people as possible but let him determine his own pace. So we give him plenty of space. When he's really tired he seems to be a lot more receptive.

Dogs, like people, are all different. Ricky likes to hug with his Momi but he likes "fist bumps" with his Popi.
