7 month pug puppy pooping in house overnight?

We've had her for 2 months now she wasn't fully house trained when we got her as had the slight accident during the day in crate or even in the dog bed. She gets fed same times as our 4yr old dog half 7 in morning then half 4/5 at night water bowl is taken away at 7 she is then put out in garden every hr from 8 she tends to poop after 9 with us putting her out again half 10 before heading off to bed. There has not been 1 night yet where she has gone without pooping inside overnight, we're up at half 6 to let them out but can guarantee we'll wake up to a mess. Help!!

You can try crate training, keep her in a dog crate over night, dogs won't soil where they sleep. But you have to work up to crate training, you can't just put her in there and leave her there, it's a slow process, getting her used to it an hour at a time.

Instead of just letting her out for the last time, take her for a walk. Walk at least a half hour with her to give her time to empty her bowels completely.

You might also re-evaluate her diet. Feed a high quality dog food that doesn't contain a lot of grains and other junk.

One more thing, take her to the vet to make sure she doesn't have worms.

Declawing: please read this first

If you continue with this routine, it is likely one day it will stick. But to try crate training is a good idea.
