It sounds to me, by the peeing in the kids room and the behavior when the kids have friends over, that the dog is defensive of the kid and maybe has taken your family as "her own". Because she is a pitt putting her up for adoption may result in her being euthanized. The OK shelters will not even allow anyone to adopt the stray pitbulls that come in - they are either sent to rescue groups or put to sleep.

I'm not experienced with big dogs because I've never brought something home that I couldn't carry or handle myself - although my parents had big dogs (which was fine, because my daddy could carry and handle the dog). But I think the muzzle is a good idea and keeping the dog on a very short leash outside. Also try praising non-aggressive behavior ALOT.
Love all, God Bless
