Ah, she’ll figure it out eventually Smile.  We foster dogs and every time we get a new foster, we think the same thing, how will he/she know to go there, to sleep here, etc.  They learn pretty fast.  Just praise her (a lot) when she does something she’s suppose to do.  Some of our foster take 2-3 days to learn the routine, some take 2-3 weeks. 

I’m sure in month or so your new dog will be all settled in!

@oracle:  Congrats on your new pup! What did you end up naming her? She’ll adjust. It will just take time and patience. πŸ™‚  Can’t wait to see a photo! I’m sure the obedience classes will help, too. Just be consistent with your training and I bet she’ll adjust in no time. What a sad beginning she had. πŸ™  I’m so glad she is with you now!!

Congrats on your new baby!  Can’t wait to see pictures.  Dogs are very smart.  She’ll pick everything up in no time.  Additionally they sell sprays that make dogs go in certain areas.  Not sure if they work, (never tried it), but it might be worth a try for you.

You will probably want to put grass in the area you want her to go.  If she’s always pottying on it, it might not last long!  LOL!  But some dogs don’t like to potty on dirt because it usually doesn’t absorb quickly enough and gets on their feet, etc.  You don’t want muddy-pee-paws tracking through your house!  EW!  Smile


Can’t wait to see pictures!

You said she was found tied to a pipe & think there may be issues with the dog… but people do stupid things. Sometimes people move & don’t/can’t take the dog, or can’t afford to feed them, or get bored with them… & just dump them or tie them to something & leave. So sad :(. Its likely not the dog’s fault at all & probably just a jerk didn’t want their dog anymore. Glad she has a good new home with you!!

& its great that she’s housebroken! Her old home may have had concrete flooring or something similar… we have tile in the house & my dog will NOT go unless there is grass or dirt.

So can we see pics?! Please? πŸ™‚

Congrats on your new pup!!  I’m so happy to read that you adopted her from a pound.  There are so many loving dogs that are just needing a loving home!!  Can’t wait to see pictures.

I wouldn’t worry about her behavior…lots of people abandon animals for one reason or another.

Warning: Don’t wake up with the dog! They will continue to expect you to wake up with them at their ridiculously early time!

Potty training will come, just take him/her out every hour for the first few weeks and say “go potty” and when they do go potty, go nuts about it, like they’ve just done the best thing ever.
