Dog Pees and Poops on Floor When Left Alone?

I have rehomed two dogs from an animal shelter. One is 7 now and has always been fine, but the other one is 5 and every time I leave her, even for five minutes she pees on the floor and sometimes even poos. It's gotten to the stage that she even does one when I go to the loo myself. So I am only out of the room for seconds. She is only a small Pug so can be carried around if really necessary, but sometimes this isn't practical. Why does she do this? She even sleeps in bed with me lol head on my pillow too. She is very gorgeous and funny, but this is very stressful.

Assuming she has no physical problems, she is doing it for attention. I would crate her, and use diapers on her until she got properly potty trained. A professional may be in order here.

You need to check that there is no physical problem. Then you have to get the dog properly trained. Get a crate and / or some dog diapers in the meantime.

I have a 8 year old Pomeranian and she could of just recently came in after being out a good amount of time and pee on the floor. What I finally did to save my wood oak floors and keep my house not to smell bad was go to Amazon and buy fabric washable with velcro closure dog diapers. If I recall right seems it was only $9.99 so I bought a few. Also I think it helped train her to hold it better since she does not want to wear a messy diaper.

Small dogs that you're with nearly all the time often feel stress when you leave, even for a minute. The dog needs to be taught she won't die just because you're not there.

It's best for your dog to have a crate. It should be just big enough for your dog to turn around in. Train your dog to go into the crate for longer amounts of time every day while you are actually there. Then start putting her in the crate when you leave.

Here is a more thorough explanation of the technique:
