Are you sure it's not rolling into anything outside to get the odor? What kind of dog food are you using?

Wash him, then sniff him. It may be a bad infection or gum disease. You never know what fur hides; he could've gotten into anything or hurt himself. You didn't say what he smelled like. lol

The Anal Glands may need to be emptied. The Vet or a dog grooming place can do it for you if you don't know how to. When you give them a bath and they still smell, the glands are usually the culprit.

Why does my English Bulldog have a foul odor, even right after she is bathed?

Several things may contribute to the smell. 1. all shampoo is not rinsed off (in the skin folds), and the residue causes a smell. 2. a yeast infection of the skin (may not have a rash.

Is she licking herself a lot?) 3. an ear infection - my daughter's lab just reeked until her ear infection was treated and cleared up. 4. the anal glands may need emptying. Numbers 2, 3,and 4 require a visit to the vet. Hope this helps.
