Step one, regain his trust, build his trust of humans. Get some low cal, like Zukes Brand, training treats (3 calories each) and, randomly either call him to you or walk over to him and hand him one, nothing else, no petting, just give him a treat. Change it up with a chew, a toy he likes, whatever, just no touching the dog until he comes to you reliably and, isn't afraid when you approach him. Teach him good comes form trusting a human. Once you get that, then you can move on with potty training as if he were a puppy. By then, he will know he isn't going to be scolded for going in the house.

Also, use pads and, an enzymatic cleaner, teach him it's okay to go indoors on a pad for now, clean all accidents with the cleaner so that he learns to go to the pads. Pads aren't ideal but, it's going to make your life easier and, contain the mess to one location as you build his trust.
