Met a 7.5 month old large crossbreed dog today that I'm thinking about adopting. He was very excited to see us and peed all over the floor. I've only ever known smaller excitable dogs to do that. The owner says he's getting better and doesn't do it as often....but yikes that's a lot of pee on the floor with a dog that size!

Is this usual for a 7.5 month old - what are the chances it'll be outgrow - and at what age.

Thanks!

This is only due to temporary excitement, i dont think you need to worry about him growing out of it.
Junior is housebroken and never pees inside. but when we pic him up from overnight stay at petsmart he gets excited and pees all over their floor.Almost all dogs do that, size doesnt matter

This doesnt happen everyday when we come back home though.
i think the dog is just happy and excited to get to a better place.
I think you will be ok once you get him home

I watched a show with a dog that did that and the trainer told the owners to ignore the dog when they first got home. The dog would get too excited and would pee. She told them once the dog stopped tryin to get their attention, then they could safely give him a hello rub but not to get him excited again. It worked for them.

what he is doing is showing you submission, he wants you to know that he is no threat and not to hurt him. a puppy that has not been socialized to other adults and people will do that. it can be corrected with continual socializations with other people and when he becomes confident with him self. it will take a couple of months of work to correct this behavior.
