I am sorry to hear about this problem with Romeo. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

I see he is a rescue; how long have you had him? And when did the defecating in the house begin?

Is the stool soft, or hard, or normal consistency?

It will help me to know how long you have had him, and how soon the snarling, biting, and defecation in the house began after you got him. Behavior problems can be complex, and there is rarely a simple "quick fix" for behavior problems. The more information I have, the more help I can be.
