    Possible causes

    Stress new environment
    Change of food from what he was used to
    Food too rich Ie adult food

    If there is no vomiting and the pup is happy and content i would think it would settle on its own, make sure the poo has no blood and dog doesnt develop vomiting.
    They have very sensitive stomachs so any food change will disrupt them. You might need to fast the pup for twelve hours to give the gut time to rest then start back on small, bland foods for a few days then slowly introduce puppy food, Dont give them milk either cause they can be lactose intolorant

    Those are all good possibilites and getting the fecal for parasites is definitely something that needs to be done.

    If there aren't any parasites, your friend needs to take a good close look at what Halu's been eating.

    yeah possibly from different brand of dog food or stress. Does the diarrhea smell really bad? Does the diarrhea appear really glossy?
