Hi Garry,

The dog may be very sad and expressing this stress, plus the stress of moving to a new environment.

I would go back to the basics of puppy training - crate, lots and lots of trips outside, constant supervision, finding what the dog likes and using that for rewards for good behavior, etc.

Also, in addition to the small crate, you might consider a little indoor wire fenced in area that has room for a pee pad on one side and a bed on the other side. For awhile, consider this the dog's home unless it is directly being supervised and played with. I think the dog is just feeling lost, so needs to got back to security by having a small comfortable home where it can learn to trust the new humans, just as you need to build trust with the dog to learn and follow house rules.

Good luck, and I'm sorry for your loss.
