Hi, I agree with the first poster. You should have your dog neutered. And the ear infection and slipped disc would make any dog snap/bite out of fear and pain. Then you have to figure out WHY your dog is biting people. Is he protecting you? Does he bite you, as well, or just strangers? You should talk to a trainer that uses positive reinforcement techniques only. "Alpha dog" training can actually make aggression worse. I have successfully trained aggressive dogs to become much less afraid and more friendly (using positive training techniques only). It takes time and a lot of work, but your dog can become much kinder. You may want to consult a vet about putting your dog on an anti-anxiety medication like prozac while he begins the training. Your dog may never be 100% friendly, but I think he definitely can be reformed. I'm sorry, but I disagree with the vet that says you would just be minimizing the damage. If you work with the right vet and the right trainer, your dog can become much more comfortable and more social. Yes, he won't be "cured". But he will be less likely to bite.
