Should I rehome my shih tzu?

We have a 4 year old male shih tzu who we have had since he was a puppy.
He can be great company and a lovely affectionate dog. But he has a very temperamental, snappy nature, he is easily irritated and then bares his teeth and has drawn blood from both of us. He has also attacked my mums elderly spaniel before.
We have asked the vet who suggested a plug in but it’s made no difference.
If it was just me and DP I could cope but we have a 2 year old DS now. He was cuddled into my on the sofa with the shih tzu at our feet the other night and DS shuffled his feet near him and the dog went into a rage snapping at my son and making him cry.
I really don’t want to be one of those owners who gives up but I would never forgive myself if he hurt my son.
Any advice?
