Default Why does my chi cover his poop like a cat?

(My best guess is that it's related to his being a 7 year old male who was just neutered about 6 months ago, by the shelter where I found him).
He does look somewhat macho at times.

Must be a long ago factor in which animals buried their excrement to hide from predators.

It is not uncommon in either sex. Hide the stuff from predetors.
