I have a 1 year old aussie mix who is very submissive with other (bigger) dogs. At the park, he pretty much rolls over on his back every time another dog even comes close to knocking him off his square LOL. He prefers chasing and playing with smaller breeds and puppies. It's more obvious now because he's recovering from hip surgery (literally unable to keep up with the big dogs), but even before the operation, he had this type of behavior. At first it concerned me, "What's wrong with my dog? Why is he such a dramatic wuss all the time?" :)

I think he's just overly-cautious and reserved by nature, unless he is with a person or dog he trusts. Example: I have another dog (about 25lbs bigger than him), and my aussie mix bites his face, steals his toys, and takes food from him all day long, knowing he's not going to hurt him.
