If you can get at where the little hole is, get your fingers just beyond it and give it a bit of a squeeze to see if anything comes out, if you have some sort of splinter that's went in vertically your best hope is to use the squeeze pressure behind it to hopefully pop it up out, if you can dress the paw then all the better, a good drop of magnesium sulphate and then wrapped up should help draw out any rubbish that's in there.

Very sorry to hear this, good luck and I hope you get him sorted without loosing his leg if at all possible.
