Default Macie and Eating

I know we just got Macie friday night and it takes some time to get used to a new place with new fur-sisters. She eats just a tiny bit at a time. And somethimes I hand her a few pieces at a time. Is this normal? Bailey and Zoey always ate alot when they were pups.

She eats about a spoonful. But then doesn't eat for a while. I swear her tummy doesn't look at full as it did when we picked her up. Maybe it is the trauma from her leaving momma. I put a little water in her food to make it a little soft. Should I do that?

I shouldn't worry too much as long as she's eating and drinking(see how she is in a few days )and if you're worried take her to the vets for a check,is it dried food ? and is it the same as the breeder was feeding her ?I always put a little water in my old dogs dried kibble as he hasn't many teeth
