He may be having problems with his anal glands. If they are infected you can get a very rank smell. It would be a good idea to have him checked by your vet to make sure of what is going on. They can get him the correct treatment depending on what is actually wrong. Anal glands are usually expressed when they have a bowel movement but sometimes they can becomd infected or even impacted and cause the smell.
