I don't even like small dogs.

After a long assault from my SO of horrible puppy pics of things with short legs, smashed faces, or freakishly long bodies, I agreed to this
. Which is a 9 week old chihuahua. He joins these two
as the four legged contigent of a family that also has two boy child types. So now I need to feed all of them.

Mogriss is the Chi puppy (2.25 lbs), Romero is a whippet (23 lbs), and Bella is an unknown fluff-ball (45 lbs). The older dogs, both between 3.5 and 4, eat the salmon and potato formula of 4health dry dog food. It is a good quality private label sold by Tractor Supply and manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods. For the puppy we bought Blue Buffalo Wilderness puppy. I feel like everyone gets a good diet, they're all happy, no problems.
Then the puppy discovers the big dogs food, and LOVES it. If I don't physically remove and separate him from the older dogs he will attempt to eat from their bowls even if I start feeding him his own food first around the corner and out of sight of their feeding area. The whippet is slightly food guardy, so we get growls and suspicion from him. My fluffy girl just looks confused and backs off and lays down with this sad look on her face. I finally end up either putting some of their food into his bowl or having to lock him in my room so they can eat in peace.
My actual question is how detrimental would it be to the puppy to just feed them all the salmon and potato adult formula?
