Alright so I adopted a dog, Tux, who's a Siberian Husky and German Shepherd mix. He is over two years ago and is currently living outside in a dog pen. I adopted him because I am graduating college soon and wanted a companion for an apartment... however, he is not trained. He did get some time in the crate and was becoming accustomed when my parents put him outside. I was told he would be kept inside but have since learned otherwise. Once I graduate, I plan on trying to get him through some obedience training.
I was wondering if there was anyone out there who's run into the same problem and if you had any tips. Would it be smart to enroll him in training when he's not potty trained and since he's been outside? Is he a lost cause?
I love this dog to death. He had a great demeanor before he was put outside and now I'm afraid that being outside has completely broken him from being an inside dog. Especially since he's so large... and now? Wild.
