Moaning while sleeping

Hello everyone, I just got a 7 week old German Shepherd Puppy and I have a question about his sleeping. Usually when he sleeps he makes this moaning sound, he has been doing it for some time now, I don't know if it is normal or not, this is my first GSD puppy so I am pretty sure I may just be overthinking it lol.

Sounds like he's just dreaming. They'll do everything from moan and snort to bark, yelp, howl and scream as they run. It can be very cute and it can also be annoying! 7 weeks old is very young. How long have you had him? Most go home around 8 weeks and they definitely dream, have nightmares and make all sorts of noises for the first few days to weeks depending on the dog.

When in doubt, always check with a vet. Not necessarily for this, but since this is your first, just keep that in mind down the road if you're worried about something that seems off. We can always give advice, we can always say what we think. But we can't examine the dog and we can't do anything. So if you ever see something crop up that you're truly worried about, of course post and ask, but never be afraid to go to a vet. Worst case you're out an exam fee, best case you catch a problem early on.

Correct bad behavior, don't redirect. Redirecting is rewarding, not resolving.

Yeah that was what I was thinking. I brought him to the vet and they gave him an exam and everything is fine. I think I am just overreacting because this is my first GSD puppy. I am very impressed with this breed as he already knows his name and comes to me when I say "Come". Anyways thank you very much for the reassurance haha.
