You may need to change food that you are feeding them - what are you feeding them now?

Dogs fart's normal..but how much is your chihuahua farting? Maybe your chihuahua has a stomach problem and needs to go to the vet.

Have this puppy examined by a veterinarian.  Your veterinarian can discuss home care and diet to make sure this is not the cause of the gas.  Intestinal parasites are very common in puppies and can cause gastrointestinal upset.  Anal gland problems in puppies are very uncommon and should not be constant--this is very unlikely to be the reason for the smell.  Bacterial infection of the coat is also unlikely. 
Bacterial overgrowth or viral disease can cause gastrointestinal upset in puppies too.  Your veterinarian can assess your puppy's overall health status.

I haven't a clue what it is but I certainly hope that it goes away soon. I can only imagine what you are going through. I'm sure that was not in your dreams when you were imagining how wonderful it would be to have a sweet little wonderful adorable teacup puppy!!! I feel for you!!! I recently got an adorable little shih tzu (10 months ago) puppy. I was just absolutely devastated when I found out that she loved eating her poo poo!!! I was so sad at times that I even thought of giving her away!!! I just hung in there because people told me that she would eventually stop, even though I did not believe it!!! BUT YUP it's about a month now and she hasn't munched on it!!! Yeah!!! Yeah those 9 months of stinky poo poo puppy was so depressing at times and I sure feel for you!!! Hang in there and I am sure you will get through this!!! :)

I can give you some possible reasons of bad smell in dogs. You can discuss this with the vet to find out solution.

  1. Most probably infected anal glands.
  2.  Another reason can be bacterial infection due to oily coat.
  3. Era infection
  4. Stomach upset leading to gas and bloating.
  5. Rolling over the dirt or smelly things.
These are few possibilities. Visit a vet for the diagnosis and treatment.
