Your dog needs to see a vet...Sounds like it could be pyrometra...You need to have her spayed!

Well give her a good bath/shower with a tea tree dog shampoo, be sure to rinse well. Could be odours clinging to fur. Clean teeth well. After bathing/showering if there is an odour after 2 to 3 days see a vet. Also I found synthetic bedding awful, Mum now uses only cotton and pure wool for me. The smell of your dog can also be affected by what you feed her. Chlorophyll is a natural deoderant. Mum puts powdered Spriulina in our dinners, good for nutrients too as well as odours. Mum finds all these things effect the way I smell. As a healthy human if you smell her and it doesn't smell right trust your instincts, get a vet to check it out. Hope you get your little lady sorted. Merry Christmas.
