    OK... previous owners are not always trust worthy with information. Sounds like he has gotten comfy in the new home ... look up 'Nothing In Life Is Free' (NILIF) on line.... it is a great training tool that will get him in line and make sure ever one in the house is on the same page with the training.

    Possession and food aggression is serious and, if not dealt with, will start to effect the rest of your pack. Not saying that the other dogs will sign up and start acting like him; just saying that this kind of unbalanced energy isn't good for your pack - human and canine. The NILF thing that's been suggested really is the way to go with this --- and it's success depends on you and your husband's commitment to his rehabilitation.

    Dogs like this end up in rescue because of sheer desperation from the owners. You cannot be afraid of your own dog. Your next plan of action could save his life in the long term, actually.

    Nylabones are fantastic and they come in so many sizes and shapes now. Looks at the Kong toys too. They love those in my house.

    You'll love him that much more after you work all of this out, consider it a bonding activity? Nylabones are all I give Geno.

    Fortunately the only thing Amber does is holds the toys in her paws.....no growling or anything, she just tries to hold them as long as she can. She is great with Ruby, I thought I would have problems but she is an angel with Ruby. Now, Amber dominates the toys most of the time but does play well with others.
