It's important to keep as many variables constant as you can when he gets to a new home. He is already going to have a lowered immune system due to stress. Give him time to adjust a bit, changing his food right away could do more harm than good.

Blue is good, it made our old dog SUPER gassy. We feed our 12 week old Fromm puppy gold/large breed puppy (we are in transition). We love it! It's what our breeder fed him. No recalls no unnecessary additives. We order it on www.chewy.com

You might want to look into raw feeding as well, plenty of info here on this site and people who can help with that.
Just want to clarify, blue is fine too, I was referring to the puppy chow. The thing about blue, at least I thought is was them, they don't make their own food, its sub contracted out, maybe someone else can verify? Anyways, we used it, both my dogs liked it and one did well on it, the other had allergies and this forced us to change.

gurlonfire2004 Blue Buffalo Wilderness is a very good dry dog food. It has a 5 star rating on dog food advisor.

My almost 14 week old has been on Blue Wilderness Large Breed Puppy for about a month now. She is doing very well on it. She loves it, has a shiny coat (Although I do supplement with fish oil. I live in the desert and the air is just too dry.), solid poop, and she weighed 28 pounds at the vet on Monday.
