No, dogs cannot get colds like we can. You need to take your puppy to the vet immediately.

Sounds like an upper respiratory tract infection, If he is coughing as well could even be kennel cough that can effect the nose and eyes as well.
Pups are more susceptible to further bacterial infections as well, and you may find the watery discharge may even turn to thickened yellow greenish discharge he may well be at risk of if it isnt already going down to a lower respiratory infection on the chest and lungs.

He really does need to be checked out and the vet could well give you antibiotic cover as well to prevent further infection if he hasnt already. You will need to tell them you suspect kennel cough as its it contagious.
