Some of the links from there will be of some help. They won't deal with Puppy specifically but since most Bluetooth stuff is CLI as there aren't many good GUI apps it's not specific to one distro. Puppy is a light distro is it not? If it uses the 2.4 kernel you'll need to be very picky about hardware and Bluetooth in 2.4 sucked. 2.6 is significantly better and my bet is you'd struggle to find a dongle that didn't work.
