Thank you for taking on this poor boy. I think he is doing amazingly well for just a few days. You must be patient with him. He spend the first 6 years of his life with little to no training, and being encouraged to do the wrong thing. Don't blame him for the mistakes people made. I'm sure he is very smart. Be consistent. I would treat him the same as a puppy. Go back to basics. Work on one command at a time. Praise, praise, praise. I believe in a short time, you will really see him shine.
