Welcome!! We adopted our two at 2yrs old and we worked on crate training at first. We rarely had a problem with them having any accidents in their crates. Granted they were older and probably had better control in general, but we still had to work on potty training in the house. I will say though, it didn't take them very long at all. It helped that there was pretty much always someone home so they got to go out pretty often. But I'm sure if you post in the discussion area you'll get lots of advice from those dealing with that right now.
