Hello everyone! I have grown up with male dobermans, and i have never seen one do this.

I rescued a 6 month old intact male doberman in July. He had no training whatsoever- he would not come, sit, down, nothing. He was kept inside all day with no one around when he was with the other owner, and was very socially backwards.

When I got him, i took him on walks daily to get him used to being around people. At first he was skittish, but then over time he loved being around people and other dogs.

About 6 weeks ago, we got another puppy (a bloodhound). And they are always playing together and the dog is very gentle with the pup.

Fast forward, he is now 10 months old and *for the most part* is very obedient. About a month and a half ago, my parents came from out of town (the dog had met them both many many times before this encounter) and my mom sat down, the dog viciously went at her. That was the first time that had happened. Now he won't let people in the house, and is becoming very aggressive. Last night i was just petting him, and he reached around and aggressively bit my hand (bruised and swollen).

He got fixed two weeks ago - and the vet said he looked and sounded healthy.

What can i do to stop this bad behavior?
