|I don't think owning a dog for seven years and persevering through his aggression, getting it under control until it was re-exacerbated by their growing baby is shirking responsibilities. This was a puppy who was dumped by multiple people until the OP took him on, has stood by him, and clearly now is in a difficult situation.
OP, I am a Cocker person who has had past involvement with one of the most admired Cocker rescues here in the States, and continue to take on Cockers happily through the all breed rescue I am a part of. Here, the general Cocker rescue approach is to not take on aggressive Cockers as it can be quite a problem, particularly given that most want Cockers as family pets. Unfortunately, when lesser bred the temperament of this breed can be extremely unstable. He's not at a good age....too old to likely find an experienced dog lover willing to take him on, too young (they can live quite a long time) to relegate him to a more restricted existence.
I feel the plight of your predicament and am tremendously sorry for your situation. If you have any questions, please feel welcome to ask.
