Oliver has loose poops

Hello, my dog Oliver is a rescue and about 11 months old. He was a shelter dog when we adopted him at around 9 months old, and was a stray before that. He is a shepherd/collie mix I think. At the shelter he was fed a mixture of any food they were donated. Upon getting him, we gave him Eukanuba large breed puppy formula (although I don't think he is quite large enough to be a large breed), and then he was switched to Nutreco Lifetime Chicken and Oatmeal formula. Once switched to adult foods he started to get loose stools. When we bring him to the dog park he will poop multiple times, all are loose, and he will go until there is absolutely the tiniest poop left. He totally empties his bowels when he plays. Since, we have put him on Halo, Purely for Pets Salmon formula because the ingredients looked good. What can we do to help him with his problem? Is this a food problem? Or could it be something else?
