|OK, so its sounds like the only issues you are really having are with potty training. Is it urine or poo or both? It seems that you haven't had him real long yet, and is improving slowly thanks to your diligence. I would continue with letting him out OFTEN. Make sure to have the places he has gone sanitized with odor eating chemicals so it no longer smells of his accidents. After no accidents for a while, at least a week, then I would slowly extend the amount of time in between trips out.
As for weight gain, is he free fed or measure fed? What is he eating? These can affect not only the weight, but the need to go out. He may have poo issues from the wrong food for him too. (such as many many boxers are allergic to foods. Chicken is a high allergen to us that is many of the dog foods out there) I would look into the foods forums and see where your food rates, adn see what adjustments can be made to help his tummy.
