Question Very basic information about this pictured puppy

If this is not the common way of asking question, I do apology, I am somehow desperate.

I live in a small town in Africa for a project. I found a motherless puppy, but I cannot rely on local vets here, as they have a little knowledge and experience about dogs. Therefore, I should mainly count on remote advice of experienced people like you.

Could you please take a look at his pictures, and tell me something ... anything, as I do not know anything, except he is adorable and I have a little support to take care of him.

If any information or specific picture can be helpful, please let me know to add

It is a boy. A cute boy dog. He looks old enough to be eating solid food. He should be getting a good kibble or if you want to feed raw, you can keep his diet balanced by feeding whole prey (chickens and other small game work well) because then you can make sure he is getting the right ratio of muscle, bone and organ meat (80:10:10).

I am not sure what else you would like? A vet should definitely see him to deworm and vaccinate, but no one can give you medical advice just from the pictures.

I'd say he is quite young, maybe 5 weeks old. Were there any other puppies? He needs to have other puppies to play with as he grows up so he can learn doggy body language and manners.
