Right off the bat I'd say this is Submissive Urination. Here is some info from some of our previous discussions on Submissive Urination:
"Speaking specifically to submissive urination, one of the most important things to understand about submissive urination is that is a very common, normal behavior in dogdom, especially with puppies that are very young and learning to adapt to "superior" beings that control them, but also with adult dogs who are fearful, insecure, or under stress. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING to keep in mind is that *they do not know that they are doing it*....it is the result of pure unadulterated instinct and reflex. It has no connection to potty training whatsoever. Therefore, it is essential that you do not react to it either vocally, facially, or physically in a negative manner....they are very tuned into the vibes that you send out and anger, irritation, and impatience radiate right to them, and just increase their feeling of insecurity and lack of confidence, plus, they will not understand what they did that caused you to suddenly react badly toward them. SU is not something you can control with any form of discipline. You MUST just accept it, contain your displeasure, control your reaction, clean it up and move on. As the dog matures, learns the ropes of living with humans, other dogs, all the complications of life, etc. as long as they are worked with patiently, compassionately, justly and consistently, they will become increasingly more confident and secure, learn what is expected of them ( via training, socialization, etc.) and , voila, the unpleasant (to us) behavior will begin to diminish and then end."
And here is a whole discussion on the subject:
If any of the information seems to apply to the situation then following the suggestions for dealing with it will probably help....but she should plan on weeks or even months before the problem actually ends. Rescue dogs have had their world turned upside down, and even dogs from a less than optimal circumstance still are faced with a different life albeit a far better life that they have come to. Patience, understanding, kindness, all play a huge part in helping these dogs finally feel safe and secure, plus understanding that it will all take time, sometimes LOTS of time, to finally resolve these kinds of problems.
