From the Foster:

Alkos - also known in our house as Travis Barker,  is the sweetest, wiggliest, velvetiest little guy, who's never met a stranger either human or canine. I suspect he'd be thrilled to have another similarly playful dog sibling in the house (our cranky senior JRT is not having it, though Alkos/Travis Barker is totally, belly showingly submissive and quickly picking up on the art of giving him space) -- or perhaps just a person who's home enough to receive all the affection he has to give. 
He's an impressive wagger, runner, and bunny hopper, but a champion napper too. He seems respectful of fencing, is so polite about both his food and yours, and doesn't pull on walks; he's a little wary of moving vehicles, but that's it. He's had no accidents in the house and is learning to tolerate his crate, though so far he seems anxious about being left regardless of how much space he has to roam. We'll keep working on that, as well as basic commands, as he relaxes into his new surroundings and is better able to focus. He's a gem overall, and I already know I'll be sad to see him go!
