Default New Rescue ?

I just aquired a tiny little blue and tan long hair girl. She is a KENNEL dog. So many kennels here in TX are 'disposing' of their dogs due to the new Puppy Mill Bill. The lady said this one was just so adorable she couldn't 'put her down' ,would I take her. Well, you know the rest of the story.
So now I have her, and I always keep a new rescue in my grooming shop for a few days to get it used to me, and the yard. And my dogs can smell where she has been in the yard etc, then gradually I let one or two go out with the rescue etc.
My limited experience with 'kennel dogs' is they mark every where, every few min. She tee tees in her crate, and so far I have not seen poop, so I assume she is eating it. She is FAT AS A HOG and not spayed yet.
Question to all of you that rescue: Is it possible to train her to wee wee pads? I have wee wee pads in every room of my house, BIG ones. I know that some of my foster dogs learned to use the pads, but they were not kennel dogs. She is about 6 yrs old and NEVER been outside the kennel. She is precious and is getting spoiled to being held already.
I dont plan to rehome her coz she is MINE now!

Hi & welcome. Oh you are a gem for saving her, well done.

Only thing I can suggest is lining her crate with pad/s, once she's peed on it put it outside her crate and then keep taking her to it and saying, "Go Pee Pee" and a special treat when she does .... I used to loudly praise, squeal and clap for joy when my babies did, but that would probably terrorise her so I'd just quietly coo "goood girl" and hand her a piece of liver puff or something similar.

Ditto if you can get to a poo before she eats it put that on the pad in "her special spot" as well. I had a couple of poo eaters, they stopped when I fed them ZiwiPeak, which I combine with raw. There's also products in USA that are supposed to help with the condition.

Agree with Dee on the potty training. Also she will learn good and bad behaviors from the rest of your crew. Thank you for rescueing her. Right now I think diet, exercise and just teaching her the joys of life are a big thing too. Is she scared of everything?

I wonder if you had a puppy playpen, would she still 'go' in her bed/kennel? My puppymill mama, just watched what the other dogs did, and copied it. 7 years in a cage, and she housetrained herself in a day or two!! Scared to death of me, but the other dogs were fine!
