I really pity your dog being left for so long. Imagine if someone were to leave you at home for so long, of course, you have to pee and poop. Does your dog have free roam of the house or she is confined or kept in a crate? Yes, the others have posted good advice for you as far as crate training and potty training go. We keep two of our dogs in crates and my husband comes home every afternoon so they are never in the crate for more than 5 hours.

I think a lot of people, and I mean a lot of people should think twice or three times when considering a dog. Its not like you buy the dog and leave it in the house and when it pees and poops, give it away. That's what happens to lots of dogs which are abandoned and abused.
IRiS, our second dog was abandoned at the park and when my husband found her, she had fleas, hairless, the vet thought she just had puppies and she also had tumors. We nursed her back to health and now she is our best dog. Please please do not give your puppy away because its a vicious cycle. Someone else who takes the dog thinks he or she can handle a dog only to find out about its bad habits and then give it away again because it pees and poops in the house. But whose fault is it? This is just a hypothetical situation but it may happen.
