You could be surprised. Our boy does not attempt the stairs in our house, but when we went on holiday earlier in the year, we stayed in a cabin which was reached by about thirty steps. He bounded up and down them without any problems. Back at home, he still doesn’t try to go upstairs. Nothing is insurmountable but you might like to have some high value treats on hand to coax your pup upstairs. Lots of patience, positive reinforcement and a willingness to carry your new roomie up and down for a while if necessary.

As long as they are not open treads a dog can easily do these.  Coming down is going to be difficult though, so make sure you work with him on going slowly.  Working with a harness may be helpful.
