I don't think so. Maybe when he's much older.

I agree that when he's older might be better.

Watermelon has a lot of sugar in it and can cause diarrhea. Mango has a lot of enzymes in it that can also cause gastric upset.

Ginger is supposed to aid digestion in humans, but it is awfully "spicy" for a dog.

You can certainly give a young pup something like a small piece of green apple or a couple of slices of banana.....puppy tummies are very sensitive and you should probably stick to blander fruits like those.
