I know you came here for advice, but I am too sad after hearing about the family member beating him to offer much. Your family too sounds like it might be too aggressive with the yelling and family fights for the dog to be well adjusted at your home. Dogs need love, respect, and a calm and stable environment. They respond better to rewarding good behavior with treats or toy, positive reinforcement.
