Hi and welcome!

It sounds like Maggie has taken the box as her bed and as already mentioned, she won't want to potty where she sleeps. Eight weeks old is soooo young and it will take many weeks/months to teach her what to do. If you have to keep her inside to potty, you might want to buy "piddle pads" and place one maybe near the door to go outside so she learns that is the direction to go when it's potty time.

It's a very confusing time for a new puppy (and a new owner too!). Hopefully someone will be home with Maggie to feed her, water her, socialize her and teach her everything she needs to know.

Good luck and don't forget to post some pictures!
