I think you could make a lot of progress by ignoring the issue, greetings LOW key (no high happy voices, etc.) and making sure she goes outside often, for starters.
She peed indoors when she came to me....then just wanted to walk and sniff when we got outside. She'd already had her outside play a couple of hours earlier. Their 'stable' is on cement - indoors, as it is SO cold out, these days.
I greeted her quietly, avoided petting her head. I slipped the lead on, and gave the command, 'Beth - heel'. I was surprised at how readily she fell in line.
