|Possible? With the right diet, it could be. I've seen senior dogs come from terrible lives, looking like they're very close to the end. And yet, go to a new home, get put on an adequate diet, and make a complete turn around.
Of course, this would all depend on what's wrong with his back end. I'm no expert. It could be arthritis. Lilo and Chance both suffered from it near the end. And with both of them, there would be some weakness in their back end. The right supplements (speak to your vet before getting any) helped a lot. Some days were better than others, nevertheless.
When in doubt, the best thing to do is always consult a vet. It sounds like he has a lot more mobility than my two late seniors had in their last months. So, that's certainly a good sign. But a vet's opinion would not hurt.
