Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Since Tristan appears to be normal otherwise, there are a couple things that could be causing this loose stool. If the fecal and smears are negative for coccidia and Giardia and other parasites, this may be due to Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). This can be common in this breed although it is rare in such a young dog. The cause is unknown but it is known that it involves the immune system and can be related to allergies. The treatment is aimed at feeding a hypoallergenic diet along with medications. The only way to diagnose this is with intestinal biopsies and this will require surgery.
Talk to your vet about this and perhaps this can be cleared up for sweet Tristan.
