Subject: house training help!

I have a pointer/hound I fell in love with at a no kill shelter. He has been with us for a couple months and he knows signs of outside, no, sit, and good. The problem is the house training. I treat him outside every time he does his business and let him know I'm not happy when he does it inside. He shows no signs of having to go. I'm watching him and he'll look at me and pee right on my kitchen floor. I stop him, show him no, take him outside where he gets his small treat (only after he finishes his business) right away. I don't see that he's getting the point. He also jumps up to my kitchen counters in search of any little tid bit. He gets more than enough food for the day. but yet acts like it's his last meal at feeding times, AM & PM. he knows he's doing wrong and gets down when I walk towards him. I've been treating the good behavior and try to distract the bad to other attentions. What am I doing wrong and how do I get him to go outside all the time. He is about 5 months old now.
