Make the crate a great place to be, and yes unless he has to go to the bathroom ignore him when he is crying in there. I just went through this with a friends Pappillion whom I was watching for a week. The first two days he cried like he was on fire when he was in the crate. I ignored him and after two days the crying stopped. Do everything with the older male first, eating walking ect. Make sure he gets some alone time with you so he dosen't think he is being replaced. I wouldn't leave the two unsupervised until I was completely sure they wouldn't hurt each other.
