    Gracie would smell whenever I took her out of her crate....turns out she wasn't holding her pee and would get it all over her. Funny (not ha ha funny but weird funny) was that she never smelled like pee....she smelled kinda fishy and had a weird feel (almost sticky) to her fur. I started taking her water up a few hours before bed and we no longer had the problem. Now she goes through the night and there is no smell. I used to bathe (bring it on.....I know it was to much lol) her everyday with a hypo-allergenic, organic, oatmeal shampoo until she stopped using her crate.

    That cant be much fun. When HRH first came here to rule she had a very strong doggy odor to her. Her urine was really bad. We changed her food and it cleared right up. I dont know if that would work for you but it did us. He's toooo cute not to be cuddled. We need to fix this.

    I've often heard that food can be a culprit for smelly pups. What are you feeding him? You may want to take a look at the dog food ratings that are listed here (link below) and consider changing him to a better food if he's on a lower grade food.

    My pup also stunk. Kinda like an old gym sock smell. When I was looking him over I noticed his ears, they were filthy. So I used Malacetic Ultra that I got from Amazon. It definitely helped with the smell.
    Thank you @desertskybulldogs for the recommendation under the Grooming Products section.

    I also started the food switch to Fromm Puppy Gold this morning hoping it'll clear up the pink from his chin.

    Check the anal glands. We occasionally use the term "ugh! Orion fish butted again". Basically, Orion's gland on her left side malfunctions. It doesn't express properly and just "goes off".

    So, pick Silas up and smell his back end. Find out if this is where it's coming from. Also, like mentioned above.......food can be the culprit.

    If it is his anal glands you'll know pretty fast when you sniff the back end. I know it's gross but you'll have to do that. Anal glands will also smell like those black stink bugs, or of couse, liquid fish butt as I like to call it. I have to express Jack's anal glad about every 5 weeks (he's my non bully). Here's a wonderful article I put together on this subject. Anal Gland Care - Everything You Need to Know.

    Now if it's an overall smell food is more than likely the culprit. Dogs should not stink at all unless they're dirty.

    The reason he's screaming all night is because he wants to be near you. I know he's smelly right now but I would suggest putting that crate next to your bed, put a light weight blanket/sheet over it and when he starts to whine reach down and touch him though the grate. They really want to know you're there when they're this young. It worked like a charm for my three. Most puppies will hate their crate (they want to be with you). Please please make sure you make it a happy place and give him treats to encourage him to go in and another when he does. I just use their kibble for a treat (keeps them from getting fat that way). A crate can be a wonderful thing for them to retreat to.

    No food cannot make them leak. You may want to take him to the vet to be check. He could have a gland that needs medical attention to be fixed.

    Just guessing, but Puppy and Crate, and not being happy in the crate, well lets see.... if he pees in the crate, he DEFINATELY isnt going to be happy in the crate. To me this is the 1st thing to check. A young pup needs to go out every FEW hours, even at night, 2-3 hours, take him out, let him do his business (Keep him out until he Does his business) then back to bed (for both of you) if he pees in his crate, Take him out, let him do his business, while someone else cleans his crate with an Enzyme cleaner, *AND* (no matter what time of day or night) Right into the bath with the puppy. You can't leave him smelling like his own pee, for his own frame of mind, and he will become confused of where to go and where not to go.

    How big is the crate? he should have JUST enough room to turn around in and stand up in. The size adjustable crates are best, so you can give him a little more room as he grows. If the crate is big enough to pee in one corner, he will do it, if he has to go.

    We had the same problem with stinky fish butt with our old dog. It was nasty. Check with your vet to see if everything is OK, but ours said it was good that we smelled this discharge because it meant her anal glands weren't clogged.
