He looks like he has worms (swollen belly), mange (skin patches) and is likely shaking his head because he has eat mites. He needs a vet ASAP.

Also his stools went from liquids to solids. That has to be good right?

If there's no fleas, lose the flea collar, many of those contain chemicals that can create issues in the animal. Give the dog a bath to get rid of the chemicals.

What else is going on with the dog?

If you cannot afford to take him to a vet, please contact the local ASPCA or equivalent in your area. They will often times allow you to bring the animal in there for treatment and pay on a sliding scale or they will allow you to make payments. Their main focus is on the health of animals and not on money as they receive donations that allow them to operate. Please do not allow this animal to suffer because of funds.

Why would you get a puppy if you don't have money for it's most basic care? Owning a dog is expensive! Everyone knows you should bring the dog to a vet when you first get it, even if your pup was in good condition it's still going to need it's shots. Very irresponsible...

What city are you in? Would you at least allow us to try and find someplace affordable for you to take the dog to see a vet?

I agree he needs to be seen and treated by a Vet, probably sooner rather than later. In addition to all the possible things wrong, already mentioned, that frequent head shaking could be an ear infection, on top of all the other things that may be wrong with him. Check with your local shelter, to see what they may offer for Vet care. Some offer some very cost reduced and effective programs.
