I think you are on the right track with him. We've always had luck with the resident dogs showing the new dogs what to do. Don't let him out of your sight! Our latest little guy, a shihtzu from the shelter, used to go out, and then come back in a poop in the hallway. We started giving him treats outside when he did it out there, and that stopped the inside stuff. Except for an occasional rainy day..... We also use the command, "Hurry up!" and say it when the dog performs until he realizes that hurry up means to go! The neighbours probably think we're nuts, but that's okay. We had a beagle a long time back, who was a rescue puppy and the dearest fellow, once he grew up a bit. Beagles are loveable and puppies for years! Good luck with your new "baby"! samm
