Hello and welcome to Just Answer

It is wonderful of you to have taken in the little dog. I am guessing you have no dog food, so in the meantime I would feed the little dog a small amount of cooked rice and maybe a little chicken. Not too much at first, maybe a quarter of a cup to see how it stays down. If you are asking about dog food, any commercially available dog food either at the grocery store or supermarket should do. Small size food for a little dog is best.

I hope this helps.
