No, I don't think so. But since DM is a progressive disease, onset starts much later, usually in dogs that are 6 or 7 years old or older.

ETA: There is a genetic marker test for DM, but even if he tests positive for the gene, he would not be showing symptoms this early. http://www.magsr.org/GSDDM%20copy.pdf
