Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if I can help. I'm sorry you have had to wait for a response. This sounds very serious. You pup may be dealing with a blockage of the urunarty tract. Just like in human man, bladder stones or kidney stones can get stuck in the ureters or urethra and cause a lot of pain and difficulty or inability to urinate. Thus is an emergency situation as it could lead to serious bladder or kidney problems. I would highly recommend you get to a vet as soon as possible to have him looked at. There is really nothing you can do at home. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
