I don't want to sound mean 50 days that's less than 2 months where are his parents? how come you don't know what they were, surely wherever you got him from they were able to tell you what mother he came from?

Both Bichon Frise and Maltese are supposed to be white or white with very pale cream or biscuit colored marking. I would suspect something else (maybe Shih Tzu or Lhaso Apso?) in the mix with that color. As he grows up, the black may fade, but he's always going to be sable.

I know it's common practice in a lot of the world to separate pups from their mother at an extremely young age, but it's really better to wait until they are at least 8 weeks (60-ish) days old.

U mean it is a mixed breed between bichon and shitzu?

A bitch can (and will, given the opportunity) mate with several dogs during a cycle, and the puppies in a litter can have different sires. So even if the bitch was bred to another Bichon x Maltese cross on purpose, it's possible that she was also bred by another male by accident and this is the other male's puppy, since the chances of two Bichon x Maltese crosses having a puppy that dark are unlikely.

At 50 days (roughly seven weeks), softened kibble would be a good idea. I think you might mean lactose free milk? If you can find goats milk or puppy formula, you can use that, otherwise just using water to soak the kibble in until it is mushy is fine.
