It depends on how hot and humid it is in the morning, how acclimated he is to the heat, and how shady the route is.
Shadow used to be solid black, his coat is long and it's a double coat, he has very short legs at the shoulders he's around 1 1/2'. He was used to hot humid weather and did fine with a 1/2 mile walk in the shade. I did have to be careful not to go to far with him because he was very hyper and would have kept going till he dropped from heat exhaustion.
I think your pup would be fine with a 1/2 mile walk, when it gets cooler you can walk him farther. I'd stop at the halfway point to give him water and a short break.
