From the Foster:

Milo is absolutely precious! He looks like a baby goat from behind and he sounds like an Ewok version of Chewbacca. His paws and ears are too big for him right now and his little face looking up at you while you hold him is heart-melting. He is a puppy, so housetraining and cratetraining are in progress. If you take him out every 10 minutes after he drinks water, he should be ok (he does well overnight as long as you race him outside first thing in the morning). He will whine in the crate initially but calms down after a bit. He might need a reminder to not use his teeth for everything and to think about the difference between hands and toys. He might also need a reminder about boundaries around resident dogs (so your dog needs to be patient or as playful as he is), but he has improved a LOT at all of that this week! He is easy to control on a leash and behaves like an angel in public. He is a sweetheart who's eager for your approval. He's always hungry and loves to both play and nap.
The ONLY thing about Milo is that he has megaesophagus. He has been doing really great with that as long as you hold him for 20 minutes after he eats. He might squirm for a few minutes but when he calms down and just cuddles with you it's the highlight of the day! He will do best in a situation where he's not crated all day.
