When the night- closes in I will- be there

The first way to deal with these dogs is to carry out the ignore for 5 mins when you come into the room or house.Whatever the dog does!Don't make eye contact. It makes sense to me as we have had 'jumping up dogs' in the past and I believe we could have stopped them with this.

There is a huge difference between a poorly behaved dog and a dog that is aggressive to humans. Ignoring an attack is dangerous.
As a number of us have stated some dogs are just wired wrong. If there is blame to be laid it rests squarely on the shoulders of people who breed poor quality dogs that are unstable.

OP I hope you know that you did far more then most people would have. You gave a dog with no chance a wonderful life in a loving home.
