I don't know what to do. It makes me very sad but I may have to give them away. We have had our boy since he was a puppy, he is now 6. About a year and a half ago we wanted to get another B. We went through BRAT and adopted 2 girls. We wanted to help out two older dogs that had less of a chance finding a home. Britty and Gracie were 9 and 7. We flew them in from Texas and were thrilled when they finally got here. The first 4 months were good. We had some little accidents but nothing too alarming. Then things kept getting worse. We had been letting them loose in the house, they started peeing and pooping when we left so we crated them. They were still loose over night but then they started peeing and pooping over night so we crated them over night. They soon figured out how to get out of their crates and would pee or poop in the house. We tried different things and we were able to keep them in their crates. Then one day we got home and Britty had gone nuts in her crate…...she destroyed it! We figured out she was fine over night so she is left loose at night but crated Gracie(Deke loves his crate and is not an issue). Hoping less crate time would help her. I am a stay at home mom so they are not crated all day just from time to time. Britty continued so go nuts and ripped off a toe nail trying to get out. We have crated them together and seperate. Britty started peeing and pooping in the crate and eating and drinking it, at times vomitting the poop after we let her out GROSS. We still just never know what will be waiting for us. For no reason we will find pee or poop through out the house, not even knowing when they do it. Our boy loves outside and spends a lot of time there in the summer. Gracie will also stay with him but Britty is a physco, she destroys the screens scratching to get in the house. We trying to let her in most of the time but if we are outside we worry she will pee and poop while we are out. If we don't let hear her right away she will even jump the fence. She doesn't go far and we always get her back. They even go in the house sometimes when I am in the shower and no one else is home.
I feel like a failure. We have tried all kinds of things I guess I just don't have what it takes to deal them. We love Deke so much we thought more would be better and I love watching them play but they are destroying my house and my marriage with it.....HELP!
