My family have just adopted a 5 month old female JR. She is super smart and has immediately clicked with every member of the family including our Boston terrier. She was previously owned by an elderly woman who just couldn't handle her energy. My only issue is her house breaking, just today we where outside all day and she never relieved herself, but as soon as we walked in the door she immediately sqauted and peed. She also will only poop inside. I was just curious if anyone else has had these issues and how they corrected them. I'm going to start crate training and hopefully that will work.
