You pretty much have two things working in your favor in a situation like this. The fact the puppy needs food and water and that it instinctively desires interaction with a "packmate" for survival sake. Just don't force things take it slow and let the pup warm up to you on its own. Keep any attempt the puppy makes to get near you positive.
