I found that when I put a Doggie door in , that there was never a problem again ! Soon as the dog learns it's there and he can go out whenever he wants , problem solved ! See if you can get one and have your Dad put it in !
Walk it about 30 minutes after it eats and 3 other times during the day. These walks should last a minimum of 30 minutes. You wanted a pet this is what happens when you don't fully care for it's needs.
Take him outside every 30 minutes and immediately after he eats. Praise him EVERY time he relieves himself outside. Do not yell when he has an accident. Just clean it up really well and take him outside with out saying a word. Dogs want your affection and will respond to the praise. No different than potty training a toddler.

Getting the poop smell is important but you may want to check to see if there could be mold under the floor/carpet, even under concrete that could have been the cause of the first incident. This is what happened here with our dogs. There could have been a spill that didn't dry properly and mold started to grow. We couldn't smell it but the dogs could.
