Adopted Yorkie Pees in the House?

I adopted/rescued a 7yr. Yorkie. The original owners stated he was house broken/trained. It has only been a week, but he keeps peeing in the house (kitchen). I have put up gates between the kitchen and living room to limit the peeing in one area. Take him out several times in the am before work (same time) when I get home and in the evening, within about 20 minutes of being in the house, there is a little puddle in the kitchen.


I clean up the pee and even spray the area that he has touched. He normally will not go back to that part of the kitchen. I have put down pee pads and he just looks at them and doesn't use them. He will go everywhere else except on them.

I have limited his water, as he will drink the entire bowl up if you let him in one sitting. I caught him once starting to pee and raised my voice and took him outside right away. I have praised him when he pees outside. I am not sure what is happening. He is very loving and wants to be with us, but I am worried that he will pee in the other parts of the house. I am not sure what it might be. I just purchased a crate and will overnight him in the crate to see what happens. I am not sure what other things to do or what might be happening that he pees.

Any advise?

I wonder if the he had a specific method when trained like a specific rug or a favorite area in the home he peed from his original owner.

You can try to re-train him.

First check with the vet to make sure there are no health issues like a UTI or other infection. Then if the pup gets a clean bill of health, ask about potential stress reducing method and combine that with the crate training and the positive reinforcement when he does the right thing. Poor thing is probably stressed from being a new adoptee at the advanced age, and that is contributing to the situation. Prayers!! Post back what you learn!

We found out that our rescue had a kidney stone that was approximately 3.0cm. He is doing much better with the peeing in the house and letting us know when he really needs to go out. We now have the stress anxiety issue that we are working on.


He is doing much better at night with sleeping in the crate. It is the am while we are working that he cries and howles in the crate for about an hour or so before he calms down. We just purchased the Adaptil calming collar, hope this may help.
