I know it's hard to watch them not eat but in my opinion that's setting yourself up for issues when he gets older and has reason to be picky (sick, senile etc). That's more of an opinion than anything else. Also, it's setting up the scenario that when he gets tired of THIS canned food and stops eating it, you'll have to keep switching. He doesn't need a variety.
If you want to REALLY spoil him, Merrick Canned food looks just like human food, but is just balanced the way other commercial dog food is. It doesn't look like a pile of slop like the rest of the canned foods do.
Other than that, I don't have suggestions for canned food because I don't feed it and I don't buy into all of the hype about "which dog food is better" that others do on here.
I would recommend, however, that as soon as you have some extra money you get his teeth professionally cleaned (and get whatever extractions necessary done now)... and then get him used to brushing them with a dog toothpaste. He's a little dog, probably with poor genetics. No matter what you do or feed, teeth maintenance is going to be a constant issue his whole life.
