We rescued a pit pup, she killed one of my little dogs when we weren't home and someone else was dogsitting; one of my adult cats, and any number of kittens and chipmunks. We didn't find out about the kittens until it was too late. It was not her fault, but she was a killer and our only option was to keep her locked up 24/7. I was also worried about the neighbor kids...I had previously had a mixed breed pit and she was very gentle and loving. I don't think the breed is a bad one, but as in any living animal, there are individuals that are going to do what they want to do no matter what. We had to have Sammy put down. I hope you can train your dog to behave. Until you do, keep him on a lease. It is devastating to have your little dog killed by a bigger one, and if he has a history of attacking other dogs, there could be legal consequences for you. Try your best, be consistent, go through dog obedience school, keep him on lease or in a run unless you are there and have him on a lease. Don't take chances that can lead to consequences you'll regret and can't undo.
His aggression may be from the point of he's protecting you but it's not a good trait. I'm afraid I wouldn't keep any dog of any breed that repeatedly showed aggression. I know you don't want to hear this but imagine the trauma he has caused the small dogs that he has hurt & their owners. I wouldn't be walking him when other dogs may be out in public. If someone reports him you may loose him. If you can't bear to give him up which I understand walk him after 10 pm at night when everyone is home not out walking their dogs.
