Has victoria adopted any troubled dogs?

Does anyone know if Victoria has adopted any troubled dogs . I am getting desperate to save my boy. I bought this dog with the hopes of it becoming a therapy dog for abused foster children, at my mothers house. Also to help get me out of the house. I feel A lot of anxiety when around people. I was hoping if I had a dog I'd have to get out to walk him. Unfortunately, now instead of being afraid of people I'm afraid my dogs going to bite someone. I've made progress getting him around people. Just not enough.
I didn't know much about dogs and bought a 5 week old puppy, who even with tons of socialization won't let strangers near him. I keep my curtains closed and walk him at night or on days when not too many people are out. I have tried to re home him on petfinder, but I keep turning people down. I feel they are not qualified enough to deal with his issues. I love my dog and don't want to give him up. I also don't want him to be put down. All the American Rescues are full right now. I have even emailed the monks of new skeet asking for $300 to hire a trainer who guarantees she can fix him. As my 3 year old gets older and wants to have friends over, I know there are going to be problems.
I want to ask Victoria if she could adopt my dog. I don't think I'd trust anyone else. You can see his ad as well as some you tube videos to get a better idea about the side of him I see.
Please nobody bad mouth me about giving up too soon. I have worked tirelessly for a year trying to help him. The stress of caring for him has given me high blood pressure, as well as migraines. I have read nearly every book in the library on dog training, as well as begging trainers in my area for help. I have considered debarking. I have an appt for a consultation, but I'm not sure how I feel about the health risk involved.
Even saving money for a trainer isn't an option. We get the same amount of money every 3 months and are always about $700 short by the end of the term. In 2 years, when my husband graduates, we should have plenty. I know my dogs problems will be worse by then.
I just want to save my dog. I know Victoria would love him. He is so soft, and extremely smart. He learns tricks in 10 minutes tops. His breed also doesn't have a doggy oder. There fur is self cleaning too. He is good about noises and with other dogs, so maybe he could even go along with her as she travels around.
