I have never seen this initiated by another dog, including the two I have owned in the past so I was wondering if anyone else had seen it or had ideas on why she does this.

Generally when two dogs meet they will sniff butts. Whenever Ruby meets another dog she sniffs and licks at their nose, even if they appear to have been going for her butt. I never thought much of it until a couple of days ago when I was walking with my neighbor and her dog. We met a terrier, and my neighbors dog and the terrier sniffed butts, then Ruby and the terrier sniffed/licked noses.

I don't have a problem with it, but she does look submissive when she does it, as she will go down low and often lick the underside of the jaw.

The only problem there might be is if someone thought she was trying to bite, as it can look like that when she goes to do it. But she definitely only wants to lick and sniff.
