Thanks for adopting!

He's a young dog with a lot of energy, little training and who's had a lot of stress recently. It'll take at least 6 weeks for him to settle in. Keep up with exercise, lots of it. For the jumping, keep a leash on him when kids are around. Teach a good sit and reward sitting when people are around. It'll take some time.

As to his poos, have you been to the vet? I'd check him for parasites if not.
