Odd behaviours are the norm with dogs I think. My female Shadow always lifted her leg to pee as she was a very dominant dog and was trying to mark. Only in old age when her legs were too weak did this stop. It wouldn't surprise me if you boy doesn't start lifting again one day. Perhaps he tried to mark a cactus and missed his marker...

I agree with BM, I think the lifting this is much more marking generated and if he's newly neutered he doesn't have the urge. My brother's old male poodle years ago used to pee by standing on his front two legs and peeing all down his belly! It was nasty but funny to watch and impossible to explain.
