I just adopted a two year old little girl who was a momma from a puppy mill. She is the sweetest little dog and just follows me around everywhere. When it comes to housebreaking I have been keeping her on a six foot leash and I keep an eagle eye on her. I am learning her signals when she wants to go potty and when I see them we go straight outside to the same place to go potty. While she is actually going potty I repeat to her "go potty." Hoping she learns that when I say the words she is to go potty. The first week she had accidents in the house but by the second week she was getting the hang of it and asking to go outside.

Awesome! You are doing exactly what you should do... treating her JUST like a brand new puppy when it comes to potty training. Sounds like you are making great progress!!!
