I am pretty sure gsdsar is correct and this is a cleft palate. Yes, there may be something that can be done. I would go to your vet and see what they say. Otherwise the most humane thing to do would be to have the pup euthanized. I would not take the pup to the shelter. They will also euthanize the pup and it is not their responsibility, it is yours to make the hard decisions.
A lot of mid-line defects like cleft palates are due to a dietary deficiency during pregnancy. I would look into the quality of the food you are feeding if you plan on breeding again.
