|Firstly, he was rescued just last week. Are you sure he's a stray? Has he been checked for a microchip? I ask this because there are instances where he could have gone missing from a loving family and either gotten hit by a car while he was missing, or something along those lines, even.
Again, I'll point out he's a puppy - of a potentially very energetic mix, so the fact he was rescued JUST last week, doesn't surprise me he hasn't settled down. Some dogs can take MONTHS to settle into a new home, and it sounds like he has very little training behind him.
Might I ask why he isn't being crate trained?
How much exercise is he getting? If he is the mix you believe, he's going to need a lot of exercise to help curb his rambunctious behavior. A training class is a definite must. It's likely he'll be an energetic pup right up until he's two or even up to three or four, depending on the individual, so it could be a while before he 'settles' in terms of energy. Does that mean he can't have manners or be left home unsupervised before that? No. It just means it'll take a lot of exercise and some more work.
