I'm also getting tired of the accusations and implications here - just because some of us have not been to classes does not mean we are not educated on dog behavior and training aspects.
I'd like to think I know a bit about dogs and how they respond to their environments, since we've rehomed close to 300 in this past 2.5 years.
Until you have toddlers and kids in the home, your perspective WILL tend to be "dog first, regardless, you made a commitment, blahblahblah", well, put a 2yr. old toddling around and it changes perspectives quickly.
We, for instance, will not tolerate biters in our own rescue for the kids' sake as much as the publics. It's one thing for YOU to get bitten or snapped at - another entirely if one of your own kids gets injured.
I admit I'm a little lost with this particular situation, first the dog was a foster, than a permanent member of the home, then a foster, etc.
I can't recall and I can't find all the threads discussing him anymore
