It's highly probable that it is an anal gland abscess. You need to get your dog to the vet to determine the problem and to start on a treatment plan.
Just as C.J. said. It is probably a ruptured anal gland.Thses are very painful for the dogs and were painful prior to this.It takes a while for an anal gland to get in this point.Please get your dog to the right away

One of my chihuahuas had ongoing problems with her anal glands , well with one of them. She had what looked like an absess approx twice yeary which she continually licked, looked sore.Various Vets prescribed antibiotics for each occurance, advised more roughage in diet and having glands expelled regularly. I finally managed to find a vet who sucessfully removed both glands with a risk of post operative incontinance.Luckily operation was a success and Tammy is fine and as far as I can tell is not missing her problematic glands

I also think this sounds like a ruptured anal gland. This is more than likely very painful for him.
I'd take him in first thing on Monday to get started on the treatment to relieve his discomfort.
With proper treatment, he should be better quickly.
