It's a husky!...build a dog house with small electric heater and throw it some reindeer meat every now and again

It's health is fine. Maybe it's retarded.
it's not retarded. It is a very young puppy. Many breeders won't let a puppy go that young. He is way to young to expect to be potty trained.

I still think maybe it could just be a high energy thing.

Kinda like how my kid would still piss his pants at 4 years old because he was distracted with playing.
Beagles, along with many of the scent hounds, are particularly hard to house train.

I sold it to the owner of the Chinese restaurant down the street. They seemed very interested in it. I'm sure they'll make good parents. Thanks for your help guys!

I can't help but think the OP barely gave that pup a chance. But it's probably best to give the dog to another home who will have more patience and understanding of what a pup that age is capable of.......and not capable of.

He may keep going in the cage because the previous owner kept it locked up instead of taking them out.
Huskies are a very high energy dog try just throwing a ball for about 5 minutes Before you start training.

Praise Praise Praise!!! Positive re enforcement is 100 times more effective than discipline. So do your part in making sure puppy avoids disaster.

They have a short memory, when the dog goes in its cage or in the next room, it will do virtually no good to punish it Unless you catch it in the act.

Stay vigilent in your training routine, and be patient. The dog will learn and the headache will pass.
