My wife, 6 year old daughter and I adopted a 32lb mix bread female dog. She is about 1 1/2 years old, spayed and up to date on all shots.
We’ve had her about 2 months. She is very kind and gentle in the house and with our daughter. However, she sometimes growls at people passing on walks.
Today, passing an older gentleman who was passing by about 6 feet away she bit him without a growl or warning. She did not break skin, but the man was very, very upset and we were extremely embarrassed and apologetic.
She briefly growled and then carried on as if no problem. I called humane society and they will take her back. I am experienced with dogs, but no expert and I feel I cannot trust her in public.
Please advise...

Have you spoken with a trainer? Sounds like something you should speak to a professional about.. They can help you learn signs that you should look for that may show the dog is uncomfortable and learn ways you can resolve or prevent it.

I know in the US, a dog that is returned and labeled a bitter doesn't stand much of a chance of leaving that shelter.
