An update on my problem pup!
So, I can not find my original post but to sum up I was having real trouble with my havanese rescue of over a year. I have since changed his whole routine. He now sleeps in a crate at night, every night, and goes to the crate on command. He eats everyday at 2 p.m. and knows when it is coming. He has had no accidents in the house since we started the rehabilitation of Milo. I have him rolling over, sitting, waiting, staying, dancing, etc. all on command which has helped us to bond. It has also helped Milo with coming when called which still remains a thorn in my side. I groom him everyday which goes to strengthening our bond. When he escapes from our house out the front door it is very easy to retrieve him. He now enjoys a structured life and knows how his day will go. He is still independent of the family. He does not curl up in laps or follow from room to room. He leaves the room most times when people come in to be in the same room. But I see progress. I see real, true, honest to God progress. So, for anyone who was wondering Milo and I are on our way!
