I'm sure your mom loves her dog very much and the dog is a great companion as well however it's probably time to begin the process of re-homing the dog. The Alzheimer's prevents your mom from being able to properly care for her dog and her loving and loyal dog deserves to be in a home where he can be properly cared for.

I'm sure your mom has lost a lot. Her memory, her independence, maybe her health and losing her dog on top of all of that seems very cruel but what's cruel is letting the dog remain with your mom when she can't care for him and is unintentionally harming the dog.
