Thank you. It's been a rough ride for everyone but the helpful suggestions I received from the folks here were greatly appreciated. Funny how you can get so much help from strangers. I'm thinking about keeping his dogs, that's what he wanted and they aren't bad dogs so, we will see.

It is all over dominance. I rescued a 3 year old very sweet pitbull about 5 years ago. I have never been able to integrate her into my pack. She lives in the other half of my house.
I have accomplished her to be with my chihuahua, my 13 year old shepard mix and my recent lab/mix rescue. Although when I leave that area of the house so do the other three dogs.
She is also very food aggressive and there has been two fights over me forgetting that and bringing some biscuits in by her with the lab/mix there.
She will never work into the pack. This is an issue Cesar could not even fix. He would have recommended her to be adopted out to a single dog situation probably.
I just lucked out when I moved to this state and got the kind of home layout for her to be able to stay. That was my main priority when moving here. I could have never left her behind. I lucked out!

I think you will have to keep those two dogs separated or at least never left unattended with the other dogs.
Always remember, it is never the dogs fault!
