If he is new to your home, then it could be related to stress (new home, new people, away from his mom and littermates).  Could also be a parasite (most puppies tend to have roundworms) and it's best to get a stool sample to your vet to get this checked out.  Good Luck!

I'd like to add though, that if he gets lethargic, starts vomiting and/or won't eat then you should have him evaluated by his veterinarian.
