Ok that sounds good. Fannie is not going to start producing milk so you will have to bottle feed the pup every 3-4 hours.

The puppy weight is the same as at birth this is not right
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Gabby, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

I am hoping once you start feeding him with the milk replacer then his weight will go up. If he does not gain in 48 hours then he should be checked by a vet in person.

You could also take him to a vet today and a vet could make sure he does not have an underlying health issue and run a fecal test to make sure he does not have gastrointestinal parasites that are taking up the nutrients when he eats.
