why would a house trained dog of 7 years suddenly start urinating and defecating in the house?


My father adopted this dog from a shelter. The dog came from an abusive home. It was very attached to my dad. My dad was dying of cancer and we moved my dad from Florida to Georgia. The dog would not use the bathroom outside for long periods of time. Now the dog refuses to go outside and will urinate and defecate inside no matter the punishment.
