An 8 week old puppy is a baby. Human babies scream, cry, wail and make messes you would not believe. You'd think the Second Law of Thermodynamics would prevent the sheer volume of mess a human baby can create, but whatever.

You have a baby. He cries. He doesn't know how to amuse himself. He's scared from being taken away from his family to someplace new. He doesn't have the physical control to not pee everywhere.

All you really need is patience. He will grow out of this eventually. In the meantime, outside every hour or two to pee and when he pees inside, clean it up with an enzymatic cleaner. Do you know how to clicker train? Kikopup has 140 videos on it. You can use clicker training to train a "quiet" command, by clicking and treating (and then slowly withdrawing the treats) every time he is quiet on his own. You can't make a dog entirely silent, but you can cut it down a bit.

Also, I have to say, I'm not normally into rats, but those are some cute rats you have there.
