|I wouldn't be too concerned about how long it would take, as this is VERY dependent on the individual dog. Treat the dog like an un-housetrained puppy when you bring it home, and reward heavily for going to the bathroom outside, and crate when/if you can't supervise, or tether, even so you can immediately notice signs to take the dog outside.
As for socializing, this too depends on the dog. Some dogs are simply picky with who they get along with, while others just don't like ANY dog. I'd want to do a meet and greet between him and Kashmir first to see if they get along, or if not, how difficult it would be to manage, while working on the behaviors. Reward ANY TIME they are in each other's presence and do not force anything.
Ultimately, I think you need to see how he and Kashmir fit together and go from there.
