Hi I recently got a ten year old male Maltese x for my son who's owner had to move over seas and he is the sweetst dog but just refuses to got to toilet out side!

we already have a 20 year old chinchilla and i firmly believe this is a territorial issue .

Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Thank you

Hello,

First off, kudos to you for taking in an older dog. I think it is great to see people do that as lots of older dogs need the chance to have a good family and life :) especially when they are leaving their family.

It could be a territorial issue or it could even maybe be from nervousness since it is a huge change from one family/house to another. Was he trained before with his previous owner? Is he showing signs of anxiety?
