Please have his fecal checked.  If no parasites are found than you may have to change your dogs diet.  A low residue diet, and a low dose of Pepcid (over the counter) is a good first choice to treat IBD (imflammatory bowel disease and sensitive stomach), if this is ineffective after at least 3 weeks of a clinical trial, than food allergies or sensitivities may be the problem.  There is no definitive blood test for food allergies.  So you must do a food trial in order to determine what your dog may be allergic to.

My new dog had the same symptoms and it turned out to be a GI tract bug that anti-biotics took care of.  Since your pup is so young, don't wait to see your vet.
