New dry food suggestions

My new puppy is almost 14 weeks old and weighs 6 lbs and has been eating Stella & Chewys freeze dried chicken patties since she came home 3weeks ago. This is what the breeder sent home and suggests. Very very expensive. Have tried to slowly introduce Blue Buffalo Freedom dried food, but seems to be causing gas!. Also found shards of bone in patties.
Please, need suggestions for another dry puppy food of good quality.
Really am at a loss
Izzy & I need help!

We like Acana Wild Prairie that we order through It's highly rated and Chula loves it.

No kibble is going to approach the nutritional quality of the Stella and Chews, unfortunately.

Stella & Chewy's and other air dried raw foods (e.g. ZiwiPeak) are far superior to kibble. And Blue Buffalo has a lot of product recalls so you should be wary of their food.

With two dogs, I was going through a bag of Stella & Chewy's every day and a half. I was spending more on dog food than for myself. I tried Darwin's, Ziwi Peak, and a few different kibbles, even some wet. I'm finally back to Stella & Chewy's, but I'm mixing it in with some Fromm's chicken and veg. It works for my dogs (good,regular poos) and my budget.

I feed Nature's Variety kibble topped with their freeze dried raw. Molly loves it - and she hates everything!

Royal Canin Puppy is what our breeder recommended and it's all Rocky has eaten. He loves it so we haven't seen a reason to change.

I feed Fromm's grain free puppy kibble. I mix in a small amount of diced chicken breast or drained ground sirloin. Occasionally a tiny dollop of a fruit and veggie baby food tops the concoction.
