    Congrats on your new puppy!
    I personally didn't have trouble feeding my new pup on the first day, but I was warned by my breeder that this can happen while the puppy is adjusting to the new environment. The puppy may not eat much or may have loose stool because she is frightened being without her siblings and mother all of a sudden. Nevertheless, keep a close eye on the puppy's condition, and contact your vet if it seems excessive. I know others on this site can offer more advice- I'm not an expert! Check out the search feature too.
    Have fun with the puppy!

    My breeder sent home with me a little bit of food that he was already eating so that I could combine it with what I intended on feeding him. If you know what your pup was on I would advise not changing it cold turkey as this could cause a very upset tummy.

    Good luck and welcome!!!

    If it's moist food, try dipping your finger in it and putting it to his mouth. Congratulations on your new baby. I can't wait to see a picture.
