Subject: Please Help/Fear-Aggression in Deaf White Boxer

go Hello, I adopted a deaf white boxer back in March. He was ten months
old. Now he 16 months old. He started showing fear aggression
toward people about after a month with me. Apparently he was very
understimulated where his previous owners did not socialize him and
he was kept in his crate for long periods of time. He was never
walked on a leash, etc. He IS neutered. The was done at approx 3-
4mos old. This was on the East Coast. I took him in, flew him to
San Francisco and he is living with me & my 2 cats in the city. The
city is freaking him out! Almost everything startles him, but most
threatening to him are strangers. He plays well with other dogs
(thank heavens) and is sweet with my cats (although he'd love to play
with them). He will bark and lunge toward strangers during our
walks. He has the potential to bite and will redirect bites to me if
upset. I am working with a dog trainer and his vet has prescribed
anti-depressants. We've seen slow yet positive progress with his
ongoing positive reinforcement/association training and medication.
Have you dealt with anything like this? Your feedback is welcomed.
Thanks in advance.
