Is 'valp' used only for young dogs, or does it apply to other species as well?

You can use it for baby foxes or other species of Canidae.

Excellent. Baby foxes were exactly what I was looking for! :}

Is 'sjenert' a borrowed French word 'gener...'? That's the only thing I can find, but what word it is trying to represent I can't tell.
