Puppy Peeing and Pooping on Furniture?

We just adopted a 4 month old puppy. She's a Shepherd mix and she's the loveliest dog ever. The only problem is that she peed and pooped on our bed and couch more than once. She also pooped on the beige couch of a friend of mine. I honestly dunno what to do. The vet says that nothing is wrong with her health.

We have returned her to the crate and are monitoring her. But OMG, I need help, we dunno what else to do, we love her so much, but I can't get rid of a new bed set everyday. We do walk her quite often, she does her business outside, then (I dunno how) she has more poop to poo in our bed whenever we are not looking. How can I communicate to her that pooping in this areas is wrong? Help!

First of all, keep her off furniture for now. Dogs in the wild don't have furniture. They don't need it. A blanket or throw on the floor should be fine until you are sure.

The trouble you are having is simple. A four month old puppy is a "toddler" that has JUST been potty trained. They still have "accidents." It happens. She's a puppy and puppies are babies.
All you need to do is continue her training. Wash/clean poop and pee stains thoroughly, removing any smell. If you see any poop or pee but didn't catch her in the act, don't say anything to the dog. It won't help after the fact, and showing anger will cause her to simply hide the places she goes. If you do catch her in the act clap your hands very loud to startle her. Then pick her up and take her straight out. Don't yell, it won't help.

Take her out frequently (at least once every four hours until bedtime) but don't let her get distracted. Take her right to a place where she is used to "going" and hold the leash (NO flexi-leash! Short leash!) until she goes. It will help if you leave some poop there and don't pick it up. Even better if other dogs in the neighborhood go in that spot.

She will eventually catch on and then should be able to graduate back to the furniture.
