How can I tell if he will survive until I can get him to the vet in the morning?
His paws are cold does mean anything
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
He is breathing heavily, but not panting
He will lift his head every once in a while
The attack happened about 3-4 hours ago and my vet is not open so all I can do is try to make him comfortable until 7:30

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Any deep wounds or tears of the tissues under the skin?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count your dog’s breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?

Can you take a photo of this to let me see what you are seeing? To post a photo, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web link here for me to have a peek.
