How much does he weigh? 3 or 4 small meals per day is usually recommended.

It seems like this is the 1st full day your pup is with you and he doesn't seem to be interested in eating. Yes?

My pup is just about 5 months old and up until very recently she would occasionally choose to skip a meal. We would put down the serving and she just wouldn't feel like it. Her demeanor was completely playful and normal so we didn't worry about it.
Just watch him closely and don't let him go without eating for too long before taking him into the vet. Has he been pooping and peeing?

when my boy was a pup he'd skip a meal once in awhile too. i didnt leave the food sitting there though. if he didnt eat at feeding time then he'd have to wait for next time.

now at 2 1/2 he eats his food right when i put it out. if he chooses not to than i put it away still, but that rarely happens. if i really want him to eat ill mix some good stuff in with it.

its a good tip to just keep an eye on your pup. if it starts moping around and isnt itself then you should make a visit to the vet
