Long story short...my Bear is now 2 years and 4 months old.
I've had an incident with my dog previously as seen here; http://www.dogster.com/forums/Akita/thread/752276
We were in my parents house and there was chicken on the table, i saw his over excitement in his eyes and knew he was one to watch so I had him close to me all the time. He felt he was guarding me potentially but my dad (who he knows well) came over to pet him and my dog went for him snarling, I pulled him back by the collar and he turned and bit me on the arm. Through my jumper, he didn't break skin, he just scratched my skin. It was basically redirected aggression.
My dad (who is 83) is obviously incredibly pissed @ the dog and has said to me that "If you weren't there, your dog would have savaged me" and my dog would have, I can't deny it.
Anyway I'm not defending my dog, I want you to tell me what to do as I can't think straight right now.
What do I do in this situation? Do I give him away? Do I bring him to the vet to put him down? I'm at a loss here. Nobody will want to re-home him because of his food aggression.
