    Very strong odor from male dog

    I recently adopted a two year old male Red Tick Hound from the local Humane Society. About two weeks ago I gave in and started to let him sleep on the foot of my bed. I put down a clean blanket and a towel or two just in case for him to lay on. Not every night but often I notice an extremely odorous and yellow colored discharge on the towel when he gets up in the a.m. Its just a little bit but it sure does smell really bad. Its not his regular urine as it comes no where close in odor. It only seems to happen overnight too. Does anyone have any idea what could cause this? Thanks in advance.

    Could it be discharge from his anal glands? That gets pretty smelly. Maybe ask his vet if he gets a check?
