I'm not sure if this is the right part of the Additional Software SubForum to post about connecting to an Android Device. If it isn't, feel free to move this post.

Recently, there was an inquiry on the Beginner's SubForum: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=955296#955296. Running Wellminded Searches, http://wellminded.net63.net/, on Media Transport Protocol, MTP and go-mtp generated several "finds": some on the Beginner's Subforum, some the User's, and some under specific Puppy threads; but none on the Additional Software Forum. So I figured a post with this information on this Subforum may help future inquirers.

The above cited thread, itself, may provide all the necessary information if you are running an Ubuntu based Puppy. But it also discusses Airdroid, an android app, which will enable many operations between your computer and your android device through your Web-browser without regard for the specifics of your android device, your computer, your operating system or the Web-browser used.

MTP gives troubles sometimes.
So I mostly use Samba server to exchange files.
I use a dual pane, X-Plore file manager on phone to browse smb share.
An open source file manager named Amaze which is famous among geeks on XDA, also says on playstore that it can browse SMB, but I didn't try it yet.

For wired transfer, I recently backed up my data on phone. It was around 29Gb.
Photos I took only were of 17Gb in that.
So I wanted to make wire transfer, for speed.
I just used ADB.
With adb pull command from my fatdog, I took clean fast and reliable backup.
You just need to copy adb binary from google adb suit to your path.
You can also copy fastboot from that suit too if you wanna dwell into flashing custom roms.

Anyway, in short many ways to skin a cat.
