But his breath still smells like he's been eating garbage
Could be the food he was eating, buy a few of those green chlorophyll treats and see if it helps. A daily mouthwash rinse is a good idea too (not human mouthwash, stuff you can get from your vet called Dentahex).
Of course, I advocate the daily brushing of a dog's teeth, although I know to most new owners it sounds nuts. But some dogs are more prone to decay and gum disease than others, and after $2,000 in oral surgery on my last young rescue I became a convert!
