|It may take a while for him to trust you'all. It took me about 6 months to really feel like I belong to my people. Anyway, you are going to have to treat him like a puppy that hasn't been house trained.
Every time he goes potty outside, throw a party...treat...praise...make it a really good experience. When he is inside take him out frequently, watch him and keep him with you. If you can't watch him, crate him. You want to have as few opportunities as possible for him to practice going potty inside.
He was probably punished for having accidents and learned that when you go potty, you get hit or yelled at and hasn't made the association that it is okay to go outside, but not okay to go in the house. He just learned that when you go around a person, you get into trouble.
If you see him going in the house, rush him outside, be careful not to scare him, and if he finishes outside, praise/party/treat.
Whatever you do, don't scold him or scare him for going inside. Get a good enzyme cleaner for any accident spots. He will catch on if you are kind and consistent.
