Some dog breeds handle cold or freezing weather better that others but I would never keep a dog outside at night in that cold of weather. I'm assuming it is a german shepherd and if so an adult is on thing because of it's fluffy coat but a puppy is another. Some dogs are built to withstand freesing weather such as alaskin malumutes which can survive in weather as cold as 70- but even a Alskin Malumute puppy I would not keep outside in such cold temps. If it is a just a couple degrees below, it's a bit concerning but the puppy should be fine. It would probably would be good to keep a watchful eye out for it. Hope this helps:)
