Unfortunately it sounds like she was pee pad trained before. I have mine housebroken, I refuse to use pads in my home. Go back to step 1 with the crate training. Put her in the crate when she is unsupervised. Take her outside immediately whenever you get home. Allow her only a few minutes outside to do her business, if she doesn't go, back in the crate for 30 minutes. Repeat until she goes. Also make sure she has water in the crate to drink. Also pull up the bathroom rugs when she is out. Then she won't be as inclined to pee in there. Candi was pee pad trained when she came to us at 6 months old. Using the crate training, she was housebroken in less than 2 weeks.
