Adopted dog urinating in the house.

Hi. Pete from Australia.

Question for you all and hoping to get some help. My parents adopted a 7yr old pug/****zu dog which had been neglected. Temp is beaut - very gentle - very bonded with my mother. Problem - he keeps urinating and fouling in the family room out the back. Parents are aged so continually cleaning up after the dog is not an option. Puzzling aspect is - there is a doggy door for days/weeks on end he'll go out into the garden, and then out of the blue he urinates and fouls all over the floor. I've suggested showing him what he's done..speaking gruffly and locking him outside for an hour - associating the crime with the punishment.
Does anyone have any idea why he'd be doing this and the best way to save him from being sent to the pound. None of us want to see this happen. They've had him about 3mths now. He's been desexed - hoping this would settle him down but alas it's not made much difference.

Appreciate any help.
