Louie, parti poodle

5/13 here is Louie. He is a 11 pound parti poodle. He has been at my house for a few weeks now.
He is the cutest little guy. He loves to eat, plays outside with his foster brother Ronan, and likes to cuddle.
They are guessing he is about 3 years old. He was neutered about 2 weeks ago, which was good, he was marking in my house before that.
He definitely panics if crated. He does not like the crate if I am not home. At night time, if I crate him in my bedroom he is fine, but he does not like to be left alone in the crate. 
You can tell he is used to being with someone most of the day.
When I go out, he is ok in the house because of my dog, I think he feels comfortable with the other dog being there and does not panic.
He is somewhat potty trained, it didn't seem like he was potty trained at all when I got him. But he is a poodle, a smart dog, he watches my dog outside and follows along. He is not completely potty trained yet, but he is coming along nicely. The days when I do not go to work there are no accidents in the house, so I think sometimes he pottys in the house because he is anxious when I am gone.
He wears a belly band in the house which reminds him to not go potty in the house. That is somewhat effective.
He loves to chew on rawhide. He walks around with a rawhide stick in his mouth and looks hilarious!
He will protect that piece of rawhide and stand up to my 55 pound poodle, but I can easily take it from him and he is fine. He is a very gentle guy.
Here are some pictures of him. He really settled in my house easily. He is a little shy at first meeting people, but warms up quickly. He has been exposed to other dogs and does not have a problem at all with them. He also has been exposed to children and is fine with them too.
He is a sweet happy little guy!
