Continue feeding him what his prev. owner was feeding, and if you wish to change to something else, do it gradually. Keep him on leash and a long line if not in a secured area, as you don't know how his recall is, and until he is more bonded with you, may not feel the need to stay close to you.
YES on obedience classes! Great way to start off on a fun, positive note that will benefit both of you.
Congrats on your new puppy! Post pics when you get him!
Thank you for the advice!! I was wanting to take him for some walks nothing too hard tho just an easy walk. I will refrain from doing that then!! I will definitely be posting pictures when i get him. His previous owner has sent me some and i will try to post them.
