Is this undigested food or something else? (Warning: graphic poop pic)

So I have no idea what worms, worm eggs, or parasites look like in a dog's poop and I thought I'd get someone else's opinion. Is this undigested food or something unhealthy? I didn't see anything stringy or moving, just some of these white specks, or chunks, whatever you want to call them. We have a 5 month old pitbull/american bulldog mix. We just bought him from a family who seemingly didn't take very good care of him. He hasn't even been vaccinated yet or gone to the vet for a checkup and I think they probably neglected or mistreated him. We're going to take him to the vet ASAP regardless, but in the meantime, I just need some poop help, please, if anyone is knowledgeable on the subject. And sorry for the graphic pic.

His poop seems to be more normal now. I think it was just undigested food. The pet store told me not to treat him for worms though until I was sure he had them. You treat your dog every month regardless?
We haven't been able to get an appointment for the vet until like 1 1/2 weeks from now. But good news is, his poop has been normal looking ever since.

He's starting to lose his baby teeth so I bought him some toys specifically for puppies and teething. There's some red stains that I saw on the toys after his tooth fell out, but from what I read, I guess that's normal.
I'm making sure he only chews soft things at the moment (keeping his food soft as well) until his mouth heals from the bleeding.
