Very NEEDY dog!

Is anyone else's dog extremely needy? By that I mean I can't move an inch without him being right there watching what I'm doing, and even if I'm sitting on the couch, he just sits there and stares, waiting for me to move. He does the same thing to my boyfriend too. If we go into the kitchen, he has to stand in the doorway and watch (he knows he's not allowed in, and if he sees we're eating, he will go lay on his bed), and if we go upstairs, he follows. It kinda gets annoying sometimes, because he's always under our feet. As I'm typing this, he's sitting at the end of my BF's footstool and staring at me, giving little whines every once in a while. It's as if he's afraid one of us is going to disappear if he takes his eyes off us! lol. He will go back and forth from my end of the couch to the other end where my BF sits, and will sit at each end staring at us for about 5 minutes, and then switch sides.

If enough time passes and one of us doesn't look at him, he will set his head on one of our laps and wiggle his butt back and forth, giving us the puppy dog eyes. He's always been like this, I've never had a dog that seemed so needy and always wanting to be right there when anything happens. All other dogs I've seen will eventually give up, and lay down on their bed and go to sleep, but not my boy, he will go lay on his bed, but continue to stare and watch our every move. I've actually timed him, and he sat in the same spot and stared at us for almost 2 hours! lol.

I'm just kinda curious if anyone else's pitties do this, and if so, why do you think they do it? Is it because of the natural breed traits to be very human friendly that make them so attached? Or is my guy just overly attached to us? He was taken away from his mother at 3 weeks old, could this have any bearing on his behavior?

He has been standing like this for nearly a half hour now...

Bullet's not allowed on any of the furniture, but I'm sure if he was allowed, he would be in my face constantly. lol.

Missy is the Same way. She has to be around me constantly. Its even worse when my husband is out of town for work. She seems to cling even harder when he is away.
Its funny to if I walk out the front door and don't lock it she is ok. If I put the key in the lock and turn it she goes nuts crying and jumping on the front door like it's the end of the world.

Ecko will follow me around and sit and stare until I settle down. My theory is, since he sleeps all of the time, that he is waiting for me to sit still somewhere so he can sleep near me. Tonight I'm house sitting for a friend and Ecko is staying home with my partner. We'll see how he does when I'm not there. Dawn, my partner, tells me all the time that he whines when I leave the room if he can't follow. I think they have an inborn need to be near their leader, just in case.
So yeah, it's not just yours. LOL

Bullet does the same thing when I shower too! Unless I close the door, then he lays right outside the door, which is right at the top of the stairs, and he hangs his front feet over the first stair and watches downstairs. lol

Bullet gets even more attached to me when my BF is away too. He knows that's the only time he gets to sleep in the bed too... lol. It almost seems like he is more attached to my BF than me, if I have him in the truck and I drive away from my BF, Bullet goes nuts, but he doesn't do that to me if I'm the one being left behind... hmmph... lol

Yep, same thing here. No matter how many times he gets stepped on or kicked by accident, he doesn't care, and doesn't seem to learn either. lol

yup same here. usually it does not bother me, but it bothers people who I hang out with for some reason. They think something is wrong that I cant even go the bathroom without him following me, or sitting outside the door til I come back out. I tell him to wait when I am just getting a drink. He is good when I tell him to wait, but I see his neck stretched so far to look over the couch for me, as long as he has eye contact he is good, lol. Sometimes I wonder if he thinks I might make a break for it and go on a walk all by myself. or maybe play with a ball without him, lol. yeah right, its so much better when he is there, I would never go by myself, lol.

kinda on the same subject. I have a family beach I take my pup in the summer, he loves it and is almost a pro at riding the waves now. Public beaches on the south shore of Massachusetts don't allow dogs from memorial day - labor day. I sometimes go to a friends public beach and have to leave Gargamel at home. which totally sucks. But, I swear when I come home and he smells I have been to the beach without him, he does not want any part of me for an hour or so, he acts all sad.
