Can't you put a doggy door in?
Buy (or cheaply make) a kennel and he can stay outside?
Set your alarm for 1am and take him outside yourself (small price to pay, no?)
Other than that, I think you can buy stupid-looking nappies for the dogs, you might have to check it out...

Also give your parents at least a verbal slap you dont sell a dog because it does something you dont like or its sick its your responsibilty and its their responsibilty you dont ditch things when they get inconvenient.

Be sure to follow any and all advice given be the vet if it’s medical. If you get the all clear from the vet it’s a training issue.
First you must get the smell out of the area…. Even if you can’t smell it the dog can! I have used Natures Miracle you can get it here use a generous amount on the spot/area and it does work.
Now this part your not going to like….
The dog will continue to go inside if there is no correction at the time of the offence. What this means is yelling at the dog the next morning when you find it does nothing. So you might have to say up a couple nights to catch him in the act make an immediate correction and take him out side.
Another possible solution would be Create Training, I have a 2 yr old chocolate lab and she loves her create. It helps keep her safe as well as helps protect your home when your out. You can find a good tutorial Here
Do let us know how it turns out… I love dogs and I will help/offer advice in anyway I can.

As soon as I am odne typing this I will go talk to my mom about taking my dog to the vet. I am nota vet expert, but I didn't think this all seemed right either. I borught byt hem taking him to the vet, but ther like nahh hes ok. But I will show them this thread to show how you all reccomend it!
From ruthandtroy if there is nothing medically wrong with him, I like your idea of a doggy door to like our garage!
To sari about our house habbits. Not really the schedule has been the same all year for my brother's and I school. I get up at 6, shower then take him out at 6 30. Feed him and I eat then go to school. Then my brother takes him out about7 30 or a little leater every day duing school. Now that its summer it will be a little different though. But this started happening during the school year.
warriorscot I highly doubt we will start making his food, but I will look into a new brand and kind. Also I like the verbal slap
As for the life span, I found this Life span is approximately 9-15 years
BHowett, well we have some pet cleaner that cleans the carpet and gets out the stains, but my mom is still getting ticked off becuase he is ruining our carpet. That is why she wants him out! For the crate training, when we first got him that is how we trained him. He was also house trained so I don't konw whats going wrong right here. But will have to wait again and see what the vet says.
I thank you all again on replying!!!! This really means a lot to me cuz I really love my dog and don't want him to be sold!!!
I will keep you guys updated on everything!!!!

Food wise its not as hard as you think my mum does it on occasion for ours if she has left over food they eat much the same as us(except chocolate thatll kill em) all you need is vegatables(left overs work rice is a good one) and some cheap mince or meat i give my mum allot of jip for it(she spoils the thing) but the dog loves it and if you are in the US its worth trying with all the problems you are having over there with dog food being poisoned in the factory at least once or twice a week for a while the extra fibre you can put in it could help.
