Subject: Help! my Deaf "attacked" my partner for no reason.

Last July my partner and I adopted a Deaf Akita/Dal dog. He is about three years old. He decided that I am his master period. My partner did feed him, and take him out for bathroom, etc. But when he lies down with me, my partner would try to get closer or pet him, he growls or jumps to attack her. This morning she just petted him, he again growled. I tapped on him and signed no to him. Then she tried to pet him, he lunged at her. She had to grab a pillow to protect herself. I had to run and got between her and him. I push him down and signed no no at him. He looked at me and put his paw at my arm which holding him down. That is his way to say "sorry".
So that has to stop. I cannot afford to see him to hurt anyone. Thank God for my partner did not get any hurt yet.
Sigh help! I do not want to put him down. Please advice. Thanks
