I'm assuming the problem is she doesn't potty outside and that the others aren't problems? (An aside, our pup Popeye sleeps with us every night and stays in his crate all day when we aren't there. Sometimes he goes there on his own to nap.) The only thing I can think of is take Shasty outside for a long time until she eventually does potty. When she does then lavish praise upon her and reward her with a high value treat. Do this constantly.

She is 7 months old. Does she know the command "Too Bad?" (Some people use "No," I use Too Bad because I rarely use that in regular speech and I say no all the time.) If she does, use that when she's chomping something she shouldn't to get her to stop. Just make sure it isn't chocolate, onions, grapes or whole apples (due to apple seeds) as all of those are toxic for dogs.

But was wondering if Pits have a problem with bladder stones. Any information would be helpful. Thanks for this opportunity to post on this site.
Vet! Unless she has started drinking a TON more water lately, bladder infection and stones (although with stones it's frequent need to pee with very little pee coming out usually) are the usual cause.
