    How many more times are you supposed to dip him? Have you talked to your vet about his behavior issues? Looks like it is a known side effect and you should possibly discontinue use. Found this when I looked up the medication:

    Mitaban Dip may cause short-term sleepiness in treated pets. If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Mitaban Dip and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives), a severe headache, restlessness, agitation or irritability, sweating, convulsions, uncontrollable or irregular movements. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Mitaban Dip and talk to your veterinarian if your pet develops dizziness or drowsiness, nausea, abdominal pain or diarrhea, insomnia, mild confusion, agitation or anxiety, or dry mouth. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

    Edit: I'm super excited that you did the titer testing for Bruno!!!

    Haha! Maybe unusual sensitivity to noise or light?

    Awww, this makes me so happy! He will steal your hearts. I don't think frenchies as a breed are dominant/aggressive with their people - they are genetically wired to love everybody. He just has some terrible trauma to get past which your consistency and love will show him. He sounds like a smooshie to me!

    Another update, I got the titer results back today. His parvo titer was positive however his distemper titer was negative.... so in the end I still can't take him anywhere

    Well, at least he has immunity for Parvo, that's more common and just about everywhere that dogs hang out. I don't think distemper is as hardy of a disease, and, unlike Parvo, doesn't last outside the sick animal very long.

    It's wonderful that you are willing to take on the task of giving that poor little guy a home. I'm sure he doesn't feel well. But, in regards to his behavior at such a young age, Alpha recognition is key. Having owned Frenchies for many, many years, if you don't do it now, you'll both regret it. They're the best and sweetest dogs in the world. But, they take a strong hand. DON'T get bit in the face (trust me).

    My suggestion is: When he exhibits the aggressive behavior: Roll him over, make a "V" with your middle and index finger and place it over his neck. Nothing too tight. 1. Don't raise your voice. 2. Don't strike him. 3. (Most importantly) Be calm.. 4. Do it consistently... Hold him in that position until he relaxes. He'll squirm. And, he'll let you know he doesn't like it. It doesn't hurt him. DON'T give in... You can have the best (or worst) bulldog in the world. It's up to you to decide. if you're willing to do the work to let him know his place in the family, he'll love and respect you.

    Best of luck to you.

I was also looking at clicker training and behavior training with something like the "Doggie Don't Device" or I saw another one called "Stop that!"...

    Welcome.. thank you for taking a chance with this baby and giving him a great new life.

    be sure all humnas in the house are using this... it will work. Pain could definetly be the reason for sudden or nonconsistent behavior.. so as someone elese mentioned have that conversation with the vet
