Need help potty training, please!

I'm very new to this site and also new to owning a chihuahua. I have a 3 year old shih tzu and got him when he was a puppy and trained him very well and now he never uses the bathroom inside but Lola is a different story. Sometimes she uses pee pads or goes outside and sometimes she uses the carpet! I have only had her for probably about 8 months and learned she was very abused and I guess wasn't potty trained. Not sure how to train a 2 year old, any ideas? Please help me out on this one. She's very fragile too. :confused:

Confinement is key to housetraining. I use a puppy playpen. Then you don't have to watch them like a hawk every minute. Another technique is tethering them to you. Since this pup is 2, she should be able to go out every couple of hours at first, then later you can lenghten the time between.
