|The puppy in question|
Before coming across this evidence, I was freaking out because I thought the puppy wasn't pooping. I worried he was all stopped up. I mean, food was going in, so it's not a good thing if it doesn't come out, right? I had the little guy in hand, on the way out the door to the vet, when I noticed there was a bad smell in the house. I went investigating and found puppy poop under the dining table. Puppy poop behind some toys in my son's bedroom. What was next to the computer armoire? Puppy poop. It was a puppy poop storm. Gross, yes, but also a relief that there isn't anything wrong with him. Except for the not being housebroken part.
If I had to estimate how housebroken he is, I'd say about 5% and that's being generous. He will do his business on his pee pads and starts wagging his tail the second he's done, knowing full well that a training treat has his name on it. However, the bulk of the time, as you can see for yourself, he just goes wherever and whenever he chooses.
Like I said, the good news is the puppy isn't broken. He is capable of taking in perfectly good, pricey food from the vet and converting it into crap.
