there are dozens of hints and tips that have worked

i think you should take him to the Vet. when you go take a stool
sample and urine sample. i would have blood work done.
what are you feeding your dog? he may not like what you're
feeding him. don't feed your dog cream of chicken soup.
if you buy chicken broth or beef broth make sure there's
no salt added. you can make chicken broth. boil a whole
chicken for the broth an feed your dog some fresh chicken.
here's some toppings i use on his kibble:
sliced apples and pears (no seeds).
chicken broth, beef broth.
fresh beef, fowl and fish.
extra virgin salmon oil (human grade).
ground flax seed.
a variety of can food. sometimes i feed
him a can of food.
pressure cooked chicken. mash the bones.
you can mash the bones with a spoon or
your fingers. mash the chicken for a better yeild.
makes three quarts with water added. freeze 2
quarts. i give him a couple of hefty spoon fulls
on his kibble.

the broths are good in a pinch, but they contain alot of salt. And yes, having different things to eat could very well give him diarhea.
Angela gave some good ideas above, as well,, boiled chicken, (use that broth), maybe some tuna in water/canned? Cat food? ...
I think you need to have a vet visit, discuss your concerns and go from there

I always mix a little bit of deer meat (cooked plain) into Rocco's kibble. He loves it and eats it every time. Lean ground beef works too. When we run out of deer meat, I sometimes use eggs or plain white rice. Those works too, though he much prefers the deer meat.

|pitmanr2003||well what I thought was a good day turned out bad. I got him to eat about 4 cups of good food mixed with satin balls and cream of chicken soup, but it gave him a spell of diarrhea. This happened last time i fed him satin balls. something in that recipe must not agree with him.. I need something that will make him more interested in his kibbles. What about chicken broth or beef broth?|

I would still have a vet check him out.
His previous owners may have said he was wormed/up to date, but did you get his vet records to prove it? Not saying they are lying by any means. I would still have him re checked for possible worms.
It's good he's eating, but I agree trying something else. If you are looking to add to his dry food, get some good canned dog food , see how that goes.
Maybe he's just settling in, feeling kinda depressed leaving a home he knew?

|my boy diesel||chicken soup is loaded with sodium, try just a high quality dog food, by high quality i mean real meat, not soy or corn or wheat, good luck!|

|pitmanr2003||He loves the satin balls. But they are a pain to make for big dog and not what I would call inexpensive.|

|pitmanr2003||Try water and cream of chicken soup. Its cheap and he loves it|
