Do you want to feed dry only, wet only or a mixture of both?
Here are two dry types you can consider:
Merrick Puppy Plate (http://www.merrickpetcare.com/store/detail.php?c=14&s=20281)
Wellness Super5Mix Puppy (http://www.oldmotherhubbard.com/dogs/wellness_detail.asp?pCode=dryDogSup5MixPuppy)

And a wet food:
Merrick Puppy Plate Canned (http://www.merrickpetcare.com/store/detail.php?c=15&s=20292)
And an adult food that I know is one of the tastiest foods out there (for later... They say you can switch very small dogs to adult food when they are neutered at around 6 months, but it's still somewhat debated..)
Solid Gold "Just A Wee Bit" (http://www.solidgoldhealth.com/products/showproduct.php?id=68&code=140)

Compare the ingredients of those foods with the Euk (or as some people here call it, "Pukanuba"...:o ), and you'll see that the ingredients are much closer to real foods...

You can look around the dog food forum for other threads about picky eaters and about choosing food.;)
Also make sure you switch very gradually (over the course of a week or two) because switching foods is very hard on a doggy's stomach.
