New mice tend to be a little extra stinky because of stress and possible previous poor diet. It should tame down some once he adjusts to his new home and gets good food in him.

There's also some info here on odor: http://petmousefanciers.forumotion.com/t36-cleaning-odor-and-bedding.

Aside from all that, you also get used to it. It would be a shame to send him back just because of odor. Sad Most pets come with some sort of smell. Whether it's good or bad or somewhere in between is a matter of opinion. Please don't give up on him so soon. Wink

Don't give up! If your room is hot,stuffy, and virtually airless, the stink will get smellier. I moved my mice to my desk, in a more ventilated room, and it smelled a lot better! Trust me, I have two mice (Formerly three) and they all smelled terrible!

Do you have him in a cage or a tank? Tanks will contain the odor more than a cage, so I recommend a tank to help with the smell. When I first got Mickey his smell was terrible but as time went by and he felt more comfortable in his new home, the smell is barely there anymore. I'm sure your mouse is just afraid and nervous, it's only natural. He can't help the way he smells, please don't give up on him.

Male mice are wonderfully sweet. I wouldn't trade my Mickey for the world. I love him.
