I got a 34 day old beagle. He is 910 grams. He is not accepting any feeds. Drank very little water. This is my very first time with any dog.

34 days is VERY young for a dog to be away from it's mom. Usually it's 8-9 weeks. I would call a vet to get proper food and instructions for raising a tiny puppy. How did he come to you so young, was he a rescue? I rescued a kitten once from a pile of garbage and his eyes weren't even open yet. I used a dropper with special food and he ate several times a day. Here is some good info How to Create a Puppy Feeding Schedule

Visit a vet asap. Water is not enough. Something like goat milk fed in a bottle is needed for nourishment. Puppies dont normally leave their mothers until 8 weeks.
