Oh, where to start...hopefully she's been to the vet and she doesn't have worms or parasites, hopefully you're feeding her the same food, at least for now. She could be a little nervous. See if she wants some Gatorade to make sure she doesn't get dehydrated. There are many many threads regarding this subject so if you check it out on that forum you'll get lots of info on possible causes, but for quick relief, try feeding her boiled chicken and white rice, or canned pumpkin, or give her a little Pepto Bismol. It's a wide open subject and you'll get lots of help! She's adorable by the way, what's her name? Welcome to the forum, you'll become a poop expert before long!

take your pup to the Vet to make sure
there's nothing wrong.

then work on what food to feed.

@stosh thank u, her name is Dasha and i love her so much even though i only had her 2 days. she is really adjust to us. she is very friendly with my 3 year old daughter . we did get a slip from the doctor when she had her first visit and shots and everything thing was fine. we are supposed to be going to the vet in 2 weeks for her next shots. i did try feeding her boiled chicken and rice but she does not have any interest. she seems a little better today. we have been feeding her buffalo blue puppy food so i hope she likes it. oh ya i am very excited to be on this site
thanks

My pup did the same thing we made 50/50 boiled chicken breast- white rice not instant and a couple of table sppons of live culture yogart.
took about 3 servings and it started going away.
after consulting a vet

well the vet said we should bring her in, so we have a appointment on friday. also i did try giving her boiled chicken again and this time she ate all of it. i think she seems much better but were still gonna go to the vet cause its our first time with her and we wanna get to know the new vet doctor. she wont touch any of the dry food yet so hopefully the vet will have some suggestions i hope we dont have to change brands cause i heard such good stuff about buffalo blue and not sure what else to try.

Great! Do you know what she was eating before you got her? I haven't tried that brand, ours eat Nature's Variety and really like it. Have you considered feeding her a raw diet? Lots of info about it on the feeding forum. She's such a cutie!
