Default Fila People- Need Help

It's been a while since I've visited the forums here, but when this situation was brought to my attention this is the 1st place I thought of.

A guy who works with my wife has a Fila that has recently started attacking small furry dogs. Only small furry ones, they probably look like prey to him. He's killed 2 in the last couple months. I don't know how he's getting to them, or any background on the situation, only that the owner is pretty desparate at this point. He's probably being sued and all that stuff.

He needs to rehome the dog, and I know this will be difficult due to the breed's traits. The dog is 2 1/2 yrs old, probably just finishing his growth and maturity.

I told them I'd ask here for any advice- especially if you guys know of rescues or someone who might be interested in adopting the dog. We still have a full house here and are not in a position to take the dog. I bet this furry animal aggression is something that could be trained out of the dog with the right person. I dont' know the person who owns the dog, and have never seen the dog. He's got 5 kids and the dog is fine with them.

Any help is appreciated as always!

Yeah, I'm one of them too.
