Vision problems may well contribute

I have heard of other vision-impaired dogs that have fear-agression problems because they don't know what's going on around them well enough. The rescue organization of another breed is dealing with one right now, which had cataracts for a long time.

Did the behaviorist you worked with know about his vision problems? Maybe they would recommend different techniques and management with that in mind.

It's great that you found his original breeder who's willing to take him back. It's nice to have that as an option. Do you think she might help you find another home for him? One that has less activity going so that he might become more confident and less agressive/defensive?
