Default Older JR biting

I have a neighbor who has a Jack Russell that they acquired via their
college aged son. The dog was several years old when the son got him.
There is some suggestion of abuse in the dog's past (prior the son's
getting him). The problem is that the dog is prone to biting anyone
who comes to the door. Most of the time he can be caught before the
door is opened, however every now and then an acquaintance will ring
the bell and open the door.

I've seen a lot of advice on training a puppy, but is there any hope
of breaking an older dog of this habit? They've already contacted
several "behavior experts" with no real results. They really like
this dog and are willing to do almost anything to keep him.

Any suggestions would be appreciated
