Congratulations on your new puppy.
What is the breeder currently feeding the litter? It is recommended when you bring your new pup home to continue feeding the same food the breeder was feeding for a few months.
Your pup will be going through a big transition period-leaving his littermates, coming to your home, getting adjusted to you, your family, your environment and schedule. This is a lot for the pup and you as well.
With that being said, a lot of members recommend Purina Pro Plan Large Breed Puppy formula or Eukanuba Puppy Formula. When you do make the change, do it gradually to avoid stomach upset, decrease a % of the current food and add a very small % of the new food and slowly transition over 7-10 days.
I'm sure members who are feeding a certain Brand/formula of puppy food will post why they have chosen to do so and how their pup is doing on it.
