There could be so many underlying issues. Could be a type of degenerative myopathy (the coating in the nerves and spine dissolve). Our wolfhound had been diagnosed with DM, but we had an MRI done, yes VERY expensive, and he had 3 blown discs in his lower back.
Could be as simple as a pinched nerve that will heal with time. If it is permanent is your dog a candidate (and family) for a wheeled cart? There are some great options available for "handicapped" dogs.
