Keep the anus moist and lubricated by applying Vaseline to the exposed tissue.  Do not allow your dog to lick the rectal prolapse; use an Elizabethan Collar to prevent your dog from licking.  
As soon as you can have your puppy examined by a veterinarian.  They will reduce the prolapse--it may need sutures placed to hold it in during healing.  If the prolapse does not reduce on its own there is nothing you can do at home and your dog needs medical attention before the exposed rectal tissue dies.
