Get some large breed puppy food, smash it, grind it in the food
processor into small pieces and add a little water so it's easier to
eat. 8 weeks is a bit young, but Ensure isn't going to fit the bill
very well.

or feed adult food, as is, maybe a little warm water. Breeder?
yeah, anyone who produces dogs is a breeder. too bad this one, like
so many, isn't a very responsible one.

Hi

You really need to make sure that you feed your puppy a good quality puppy
food until at least 12 months old ... wait until he is about 12 weeks before
introducing the large breed puppy food.

IIRC, the puppy is 8 weeks old? That's not newborn and doesn't need mother's
milk replacement. A good puppy food saturated with water to soften it up
should do fine.

On what basis would you feed a regular puppy food instead of a large
breed puppy food to a large breed puppy?

You have a puppy, not a human baby. Feeding similac, enfamil or
anything else is innapropriate. Do not add your own "private mix" to a
large breed puppy food. All you will do is screw up the balance of
nutrients within the pet food. Especially adding milk based products
that may not have the right calcium and phosphorus ratio - you may end
up with the wrong ratio and cause ricketts in the dog. The puppy is
more than capable of eating a gruel made of puppy food an warm water.
