If he still smells after his bath, check his ears.

Bassets need their ears cleaned on a regular basis to prevent yeast buildup and possible infections. I use a solution called Dermapet that I get from my vet- squeeze a little into the ear, rub the base, then reach way down into the ear canal with cotton balls/sterile gauze to swab the solution out.

I do this once weekly to prevent problems- my vet says Murray has the cleanest ears he's ever seen on a basset!

There are other things you can use, and your vet can show you how to clean the ears if you're unsure-

Good luck, and welcome!

Do you know what he was eating at his old home? Maybe mixing the old food with whatever you're feeding him now, and gradually increasing the amt. of new food over a few days will help ease him into a new diet- did you mention to the vet that he's not eating?
