The eye may not be producing enough tears. You can wash the eye out with water and you can get artificial tears. There could be a bacterial infection there, too. But...I would advise that you get the dog to the vet. There could just be a foreign body in the eye that needs to be removed, there could be a scratch or some other type of injury, too. There are many things that cause pus in the eyes. Treatment for all of these is different.
