Many times they will not move, as an 'intimidation factor' (Even though they're tiny...). He very likely was fine, but thought you and your dog were threatening, and was warning the rest of the squirrels nearby.
Believe me, it's an IRRITATING alarm, especially when all the squirrels in the enclosure outside decide you're a threat... Like I said. I've done extensive reports on rabies. This sounds more like standard squirrel actions than rabid actions. I see behavior like that with the squirrels around my campus - and boy, do we have a lot of squirrels here!
Wow! I didnt know that that is normal! We have squirrels everywhere in my yard and I've never seen it before, mustve been why I thought it was rabies! My bad.
