My Olde english bulldog "smells" real bad, what can I do about it ?

He is 4 1/2 months old , we just got him like 10 days ago. Any ideas?

I would give him a good brushing to get any matts or tangles out, then give him a bath.

Give him a bath or take him to the groomer to have them bathe him. When you bathe him make sure you wash him really good between them wrinkles and once he's done dry him very good in between the wrinkles as well. Also, keeping him indoors would be good so he is not lying around in the dirt, mud, dead worms, etc.

Definitely give him a bath and pay special attention between the wrinkles. Your going to have to clean those wrinkles every day or they can get infected. One of the best dog shampoo's I've found was the Lambert Kay Fresh n' Clean scented shampoo. It's the orange colored one. On my dogs the scent will last about 2 weeks.

Another thing to consider is his food. Sounds weird right? Our vet put Jersey on Medi-cal (corn based dogfood) because her weight was getting to high.
With-in a week our previous non-smelly dog stunk to high heaven. Nothing I did would remove her offensive stench. Out of desperation I put her back on Fromm (grain free food) and two week later the smell was gone except when she got wet! A month later she was back to having no smell even wet!
