hi there, as you havent replied i will provide a basic answer and complete the question though we can continue talking after if required

shaking can be a sign of a few things - if there are any other symptoms, it could be due to these.

shaking or shivering can be a sign of a fever- this can be due to inflammation somewhere in the body for example an organ or an infection- this often is seen with a dog being lethargic or not wanting to eat.

shivering can also be a sign of pain somewhere for example back pain or pain or swelling associated with a leg which has been injured due to trauma. make sure there is no signs of pain or limping from your puppy.

if this has settled now there i wouldnt worry, if it has been going on for today then i would advise making an appointment with the emergency vet today for examination, temperature check and orthopaedic exam so the back and legs can be assessed for signs of pain
