I got my dog about 3-4 weeks ago. He's a neutered black lab and pitbull mix, and about 10 months old. The owners claimed he was potty trained, but he's not trained very well; he's gone inside about 10 times.
I'm concerned about two things:
First, to me - his behavior is peculiar.
He peed inside, and then I scolded him. Within minutes, with me still in the room cleaning up his mess - he walked to the other side of the room and pooped.
In another case (today), he peed while standing next to me. I scolded him and pulled him (hoping he'd stop, and wanting him to pee on a different fabric if he wouldn't stop), but he kept going. This left a trail of pee... And the icing on the cake: he pushed it ALL out. He spent maybe a couple of minutes peeing, right in front of me, despite being scolded - and at the end, it was repeated squirt and stop. He wasn't content to get some relief, he insisted on getting it all out.
What's with this?
My second concern: he pees *a lot.* Should I be worried that even if I shampoo, etc. that it'll soak to the padding and ruin it? I'm disabled and low income, I can't keep him if that's the case.
