Friend, those rice like kernels are tapeworm segments. Romeo has tapeworms. He needs to be dewormed, you can buy a dewormer called Praziquantel in your local pet store, online or vet's office; give at label dose.

Should dog 2 also be treated what about humans?
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 2 years ago.

I would treat the other dogs as well.

Humans do not need to be treated, it should not be an issue.
