And just what have you been doing to work with this dog and his nipping and growling.

You are the caregiver for this dog. It's your responsibility to find a safe new home for it if you are not willing to work with the dog and his temperment issues. If you have to pay to surrender it to a rescue then find the money to do that if need be. Period. It's a one time investment to give this poor dog the chance to continue to live instead of surrendering it to a shelter to be put down. You owe that to this dog.

Well said, clm. It really upsets me when people feel their pet is "too much trouble" and quickly hand it over to be somebody else's responsibility.

Try going to obedience class to train the dog properly.
