Take him to the vet ASAP. Pale gums are a sign of blood loss. He may be bleeding somewhere internally. How long has he not been eating? Any Diarrhea or vomiting? When you say he is lethargic do you mean a little slower or does he seem like he doesn't even want to get up?

I only ask because coincidentally my brother's rescued pitbull had similar symptons and it was a very serious case of Babesia.. It so happens that it is a very common illness in pitbulls, and can be very fatal if it's not caught in time. My brother's dog needed blood transfusions and hospitalization for a couple days.
