8 Year Old Dog Peeing On the Floor?

I have two Yorkies. One is 4 years old. I've had him since he was 8 weeks; potty training was easy. The girl who is 8 yrs. old was given to me a month ago. She pees in the house in front of the front door or at the back door even after being taken out the same amount of times as my other dog what should I do?

Have you had her to the vet? She might have a UTI or bladder infection, or prolapse (if she has whelped one or more litters).

If the vet check shows she's physically ok, then she's still going through re-homing adjustment, try to be patient and treat her as though she is a puppy you are house-training for the first time.

Since she's a small dog, you might want to think about using puppy pads at her 'accident points' until training and re-homing adjustment is completed. Your vet will have lots of good tips to offer as well.

Poor thing, eight years old and having to go through re-homing, it can't be easy on her. Please update on her progress, and I hope you'll include a picture of her and her new friend (your established Yorkie).
