advice needed for a new pitbull owner :)

Hi! I just recently adopted a 5(?) month old pit from the shelter. He is absolutely awesome and has wonderful manners for being a shelter dog. My one main complaint is he is soo smelly! He smells like super strong urine. I have bathed him twice but the smell always comes back!
He is getting neutered next month, will that fix the problem? Could it possibly be the food he's eating? I'm feeding natural balance sweet potatoe and bison.
Any suggestions, advice, remedies would be more then greatly appreciated!

Thank you for ADOPTING and saving a life from the pound Neutered has nothing to do with the way he smells.

Urine smell you say?? I am at a loss....Does he pee in his crate? What are you washing him with?

Does the smell, smell slightly fishy? You may need to drain his anal glands. Had to do it to my dog the other day. She smelled like disgusting, strong fishy odor, I thought maybe a urinary tract infection, but I bathed her...did the deed...and now she doesn't stink. Words of advice I got from a friend...just don't put your hand in the line of fire...haha

thanks for all the suggestions! He is only crated when I go to work and so far he has yet to have an accident The vet had said that maybe he is peeing on his feet, I guess he will have to get weekly "pedicures". haha. He doesn't lift his leg to pee yet so maybe this is the case. The smell is like a strong ammonia smell, not a fishy one. I've had friends tell me its just cause he is a male dog, I sure hope not!

I am glad you had him to the vet
I would still check his urine, to make sure there isn't an infection.

I have a male dog,and he doesn't smell. So it;'s not cause he is male. I also think it's most likely peeing on himself.

ps: Shelter pits ROCK! They're so grateful towards you! My Bruno is a shelter rescue as well! Got him at 10 months.
