Your boy may have been rehomed due to trouble with house training. If that is so, he may have been treated harshly for pottying where he shouldn't, dragged outside, where the anger, frustration, berating continued. He may be leary of pottying when you want him to. Some rescue folks who have more experience with getting pups situated in their new homes and house training, might have some good suggestions. What I would do is leash the dog to me, and the moment I saw him start to potty, I would say OUTSIDE. Not loud, but this can be expanded to, Do you want to go OUTSIDE?
Take him out immediately and just follow him around on lead, as long as it takes, and when he does potty, Good Boy, you went pee pee OUTSIDE. What a good boy you are.
If he continues to pee until he is done, most of it inside, then you might have to just go out every two hours, and do a lot of waiting so that you can praise him when he does go.
