He probably misses him Mom and littermates.
Did his breeder give you something from home with their scent, like a toy or a blanket? If so, you could put that with him. If not, you could try putting something that has your scent on it with him.
Daisy cried the first night too. Your heart just breaks for them.

Jacks is missing his Mom and siblings. It's normal....I am not sure where he is sleeping but if he doesn't see you he will probably cry not knowing where you are. I must admit also, I always had mine sleep with me too.

It's 100% normal. My first few days with Maddie were the best and the worst. She would cry all nights because I wanted to crate her at night and that just didn't happen. She was fine if she was laying on me or near someone. I could not let her cry it out. She now is 4 and is perfectly fine being in her crate or being alone. So this time will pass.

Default Crying

I have Riley's crate next to my bedHe did not whine much the first night or two and pretty much sleeps all night! If you put him in bed with you he will always sleep in bed with you. My last 2 both slept with me so I really wanted to crate train. As far as his playpen downstairs, he cries if we close him in there so we leave the door open and just have his potty in there which he uses great. When we both leave we put him in there with his bed and he does fine.

Thanks everyone he sleeps in his crate next to my bed. I'm sure this is normal behavior. He is such a great puppy

When we got Symon home at 5 weeks (way to young/abandoned) he would cry for hours for the first 2 nights. We needed to keep him kenneled because he was to young and would urinate in the bed. I used a DAP defuser and the spray of female mom pheromones in his kennel which was right next to my bed. This product worked wonders. The third night he slept content with no tears. After 2 sleepless nights I consider DAP a miracle! I continued to use this product for about 3 months for kennel training and always sprayed his kennel when we left the house. He loves his kennel, a place of solitude and peace for him now. We also still use the spray for thunderstorms and 4th of july fireworks which terrify Symon. We just spray his kennel and he goes inside and then off to sleep with the door open. It is a little expensive but when you consider the alternative it is money well spent.

It is normal....

I'm a softee. I couldn't let mine cry when they were puppies. So mine were carried and tethered to me 24/7 basically.
