The humping could be more of a dominance thing. But i have also seen it when a dog is just so excited, has to much energy built up and the humping is their outlet. Having him neutered should help but if this is an energetic dog it won't get rid of all the energy. How much exercise does your dog get during the day? If the answer is not much then somebody needs to start taking this dog on walks, running or throw the ball for him for 45 minutes or so. This dog also needs training, he won't learn manners otherwise. If you don't have a crate you should get one. The crate is a great way to keep dogs out of trouble. He should not be left in the crate, all day, only when he can not be watched. Get him some good chew toys that are not easily destroyed like Kong's or soup marrow bones.
