My boy McCoy came home the day before Thanksgiving 3 years ago. As it was a total surprise, we were really unprepared. I had 1/2 day to get my s..t together before I drove down to Southern Oregon and picked him up. I borrowed a medium sized Vari-Kennel from our vet. When McCoy got home we hung out and then I tossed in the blanket he had driven home with in the truck.

The little guy slept open crated for 9 hours! Not a peep (or a pee). I took him out in the AM and all was good. He was 10 weeks old. This little guy was almost trained immediately. I can count on one hand the number of times he peed or pooped in the house. He self crated immediately. I have never had to shut his crate door.

Sometimes you just luck out! LOL

The bottom line is that ... "You never know". But eventually, they all get house trained.
