It sounds like someone was harsh on the dog before and it’s afraid of being disciplined now. I would try to use more positive reinforcement and be mindful when you’re disciplining him from now on.

I have a 14 year old maltipoo, got her when she was 8 weeks, and she would do the same for the first bit.  It also may be what others suggested, a past guardian was harsh on him, and now he gets nervous when scolded.  When our dog used to do that, we would automatically say, “no” in a firm, but calm voice, and take her outside.  If she did her business outside, we would reward her with a small treat.  Now everytime she has to go, she runs to the door, barks, we let her out, she does her business, comes in, and waits at the kitchen for a treat.

If possible, taking him out to the spot where you want him to go will help I think.
