No, I don't think it's a hemorroid, I would suspect an anal sac infection/rupture, which is quite serious. I would take him to the vet as soon as you are able. Put a warm compress on it to make sure it keeps draining.

Agree with puptrainer.  I had a dog that had recurring problems with anal glands.  You need oral antibiotics from the vet at the very least.

Yes, it is possible for a dog to have hemorrhoids and constipation.  Not sure if that's the case here.

I would recommend consulting your vet about this.  

I have three mini pins myself.  Yours is a great deal overweight.
