Lots of puppies and some adult dogs eat poop. Sounds like your pup was just playing and not actually consuming it. I had a beagle that did it most of her life- some theories are they're deficient in something, they smell some undigested food, or they just like it.

Yes there are quite a few differing theories around this. My advice..keep an eye on him. Get him checked for worms/parasites as well.
