I think it is alright given the fact that dogs usually love the taste of peanut butter and therefore you can prepare a simple, inexpensive treats at home by also including your own wholesome ingredients.

Just because a dog likes something doesn't mean it is good for it....

Yet dogs have been eating peanut butter for years and I haven't heard of them getting sick from it. I do agree that too much is bad but a little won't hurt it.

Nuts are not recommended for any breed of dog. Get some puppy treats. And good luck with the puppy!

Yes. Kong even sells as a treat to fill their toys. Is it healthy? Well, it's high in calories so wouldn't give to much.

Do not be tempted to offer other nuts to a dog though. Macadamia nuts and walnuts can be toxic to canines.

PB is okay for dogs; I use it to give my dogs pills sometimes with my vet's blessing. However, with such a tiny dog, I'd urge caution in the amount you let him have.
