I've no clue about the spaz behavior of squeeling and flaring up. But I understand the bonding thing your dad wants. We rescued Rocky, a 3 year old GSD in July. He really LOVES my husband, and he liked me ok. Well, he would just follow my husband, obey him, sit with him, you name it. But, my husband travels about 3 out of four weeks a month. So, in the two months we've had Rocky, he is really getting to love me, follow me, choose me, obey me. I guess my point is, if your father wants to bond with the dog, he should be the one to feed him, walk him frequently, train him daily, and play with him a lot, brush him and pay attention to him (using the NILIF plan). It does take time, it won't happen over night, but it does happen. I'm proof! Good luck! And thank them for taking on an adult dog. It isn't easy, but they're wonderful!
