Unhappy Swollen and infected toe joint

My dog has a badly swollen and infected rear foot toe joint that is very painful. He will not touch his foot to the ground. The vet took xrays, says nothing is broken, and indicated it might just be a soft tissue injury. However, it has been nearly three weeks since onset and it seems to be getting worse. There is no evidence whatsoever of any puncture, bite, sting or injury, but I won't rule any of them out. We have been to the vet 3 times and spent way too much to be no closer to a diagnosis. My dog is a golden retriever, previously healthy, but loosing his will to live. He hates to be laid up. Any ideas?
