He clearly sounds overwhelmed with the changes in his life and you need to protect him too. Get a crate or two and, if you have company around, put him in his crate. He can then be with people without being overwhelmed. If he does not do well in a crate, either use a baby gate to place him in a different room (where he can still see people) or place him in another room by himself while the company is there.

He needs time to adjust and to settle in before you expect him to be good with unpredictable people.
