I’m writing this in hopes that someone here would know what to do in a situation like this. A few months back our senior dog was impregnated by the neighbor’s dog (both of which were pitbulls). She had difficulty with the pregnancy so we had to take her to the vet to have a C-section. All together she had seven puppies but three of them had died. A few days later, on my way back to work from lunch, my husband had called me in tears and said that somehow her stitches had come undone and she had bled out. In a nutshell, the neighbors had agreed to help us take on caring for the puppies and start bottle feeding them. My husband had discussed that we would keep one. So ten weeks later after all the dogs had found homes excluding ours, we came to the conclusion that this puppy was deaf. The only problem we seem to have with this puppy is potty training him. I’ve tried putting him on a schedule along with our other dogs. Yet everytime he comes in from being out, he will go to our laundry room and use the restroom. My husband thought that blocking off the room would do some kind of justice, but this puppy managed to get passed our baby gate and soil on the floor and even went as far as to knock over a basket of clean laundry on top of it. I feel like in a way he knows he’s not supposed to do it because he tucks his tail and hides. My husband has mentioned finding him a new home that would be willing to work with him because no matter what we try, it does not get through to him. I do not want to give up on him though. This post is my desperate plea for help/advice. Does anyone have any idea on what I can do??
