You haven't had you dog long. It takes about a year to establish trust and bonding. You did not say what your dogs previous situation was. Do you know if he was a house pet or roamed on a farm? Your dog is having to make a huge adjustment and is probably unsure of his place.
Be gentle. Never speak with a loud or harsh voice to him. When in the house, keep him with you on a leash. When you see him start to sniff the floor, invite him in a pleasant voice to come outside. Lots of praise when he does his business out there. Cleaning products with odor control are available and should be used diligently inside the house.
Introduce a large crate to him. Make the crate a comfortable and pleasant place for him to be. Do not lock him in until he shows you he is happy to relax in his den. Make sure his crated times are short.
Check up with your vet would rule out health issues and your dog should be given a wormer. Make sure his food is grain and corn free and has whole protein as the first ingredient listed. Buy the very best you can afford. I can recommend Origen Red kibble from our experience with both our dogs. Its really worth it to feed them well. We do not feed raw but there is lots of information on this site on that. Make the change-over to the new food slowly; mix the new food into his present diet for several weeks until the switch over is complete. Avoid canned commercial dog food.
Your fence should be at least 6ft high. He can and will climb, or jump a 5ft fence easily.
Good luck with your boy. I'm sure good food, patience and a consistent schedule with him will work.
