And you and your spouse got bullied into giving away your dog. It's your house, and you are the head of the family, so you should set the rules, not your kids in response to your grandkids' poor behaviour. Geesh...
That's it right there!

We understand it's our fault not the dog's. We cant go back in time wish that we could Our children's pressure forces us to move the dog out but not gone. All the dog's foibles are known to the new owner. I think it will work out fine.
As one of the people that was saying that you had no choice but to put the dog down, I have never been so pleased to be wrong in my life! Thank you, thank you for finding another solution that works out for everyone, including your dog!

Glad that a home was found, still I would see if a vet could check thyroid. Sometimes low thyroid can cause aggression.
