Rather than pay to have him put down,
you could pay to do a blood test and check his thyroid....
Best of luck for you and your dog...

One of the worst situations is when a dog is impulsively aggressive. This is not learned behavior. It is not caused by abuse. It is the result of a highly unstable genetic condition that breeders seek to keep out of their lines, but it does pop up once in a while. The only types of dogs in which breeders actively breed for this trait are game dog breeders - those that are used in fighting. There is no rehabilitating such a dog, sadly. The dog will always be a danger.
If you can find a person who is willing to take this dog, I would have them sign a release that they have been informed thst dog has a biting history, that they are able to give it a special needs placement, and that you will no longer be responsible for any damage the dog does. Also, the dog may need to be muzzled whenever it is off of the owner's property - basically treated as if it was legally declared a dangerous dog.
This is a heartbreaking situation, but you may need to consider gaving the dog put down - perhaps after both a vet exam and maybe having him looked at by a trainer that deals with severe aggression. It sounds like you have already done a lot for this dog even if it feels like it still is not enough.
