Rescue Bassett Hound Pooping Inside?

I rescued a Bassett Hound from the street about 7 weeks ago. She was very malnourished and deprived of food. I have been giving her Royal Canin which has helped with her weight. The vet said she is about 1.5 - 2 years old.


My problem with her is the frequency she goes potty. She consistently poops 6-7 times a day. Recently she has started pooping in my bedroom right after I take her inside from pooping outside. She has pooped in my bedroom after doing the same thing outside for 2 straight days now. I'm beginning to lose my patience with how much she potties and her pooping in my room. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

A lot of thoughts and questions come to mind reading your post. It is frustrating not knowing this dogs history. You will have to get to know this dog a lot better before you can solve her problem. I guess the 1st question I would ask is, do you want to work hard at this problem? You will need to work with your Vet to see if it is a physical problem, worms, disease, allergies to food, other illnesses. Then you will need to consider behavioral problems that are pretty common with rescue animals.


Any number of these potential problems can take awhile to work through. If you decide it is more than you want to take on, consider a good no kill rescue or Humane Society. If you decide to work through this, I would start with a hypoallergenic diet. You might try adding a teaspoon to a tablespoon of pumpkin to the food to firm up the stool. Then I would go over the possibilities with my Vet and see what he or she suggests. Clearly there will be some trial and error. Good luck to you.

The food may be too heavy for her. I would speak to the vet about changing her diet.
