What breed might the puppies be? I would not trust terriers or other breeds intended to hunt rodents since the hunting instinct for small fast moving creatures is too strong.
I don't have any experience with puppies and ferrets together so hopefully someone else will have a better answer for you. I've only dealt with adult dogs around them, and after having one ferret be injured--by accident, I trusted them otherwise but it proved things can happen--I don't have them together anymore.
I had a dog that was great around other animals, the most gentle dog ever inside but outside she was a hunter. I would trust her with the ferret but never had them interact whatsoever. The ferret would try to bite the dog's paws which in turn could have turned out to be a disaster. I never took the chance or even tried. Accidents happen and you wouldn't want to lose your ferret because a husky and a rottie grow up to be bigger dogs and their bite would kill your ferret. You would be heart broken. Don't take the chance, not worth it.
