Housebroken dog regressing

Ozzie ia about five years old. He’s a shepherd/setter mix about 83 pounds. He belongs to a friend but spent six months at my house after being subjected to a very small crate 24 hours a day, too small to stretch out in. (Divorce thing). He is house broken and is a house dog. The divorce is over and he is back with his owner in the house where he was held “captive” by “her.” Whenever he gets into the basement he poops. He also urinates on beds and futons. His hours are not consistent because his owner has different hours. His work is an hour away. His grandmother is going down every day to let him out and get rid of “evidence.” He does not poop upstairs. Any idea what is really going on and how to stop it? Thanks so much.

I suspect this started when he was living with “her” and will be difficult to modify without a person available to reinforce proper house training. Alternative living arrangements, such as a doggie day care may be the most appropriate solution.
