From the Foster:
Rio is an adorable puppy that loves attention, a good belly rub, playing ball, and is a very happy easy going dog. He could use some training, although he does know some basic commands like sit and shake. He gets along with dogs well, cats unknown. He sleeps in his kennel, and is kenneled when we are away. He is house trained, and we have had zero issues in the house.

Rio does have Addison's but that doesn't slow him down at all! After doing a bit of research online, Addison's disease is a pretty easy disease to control with an injection done by the vet once a month!
