Adopted a senior citizen Boston terrier
Adopted a senior citizen Boston terrier...BIG MISTAKE! Actually I'm not so sure it's a mistake but I'm so frustrated. He is a nine-year-old dog, was brought into the shelter as a stray, so no previous knowledge of his behavior was given. We wanted a dog who would be a lap dog and companion to my husband who has dementia. So far so good. But the dog will not poop outside. We have had the dog three days and he has pooped in one area of the basement. If I can't fix this… And my experience with 14-year-old Yorky who was never completely housetrained tells me that it is very difficult to change an adult dog ...I will have to return the dog to the shelter I really don't want to do that. Is there any likelihood I can change the behavior of an adult Dog?
