Aggressive boxer mix

Macie was a very goofy, lovable girl when I first took her in , she became a foster failure. She got along with my 3 neutered male dogs & did well with other fosters. I usually had male fosters, then I had a female, whose name was also Macy. The other Macy was very dominant but the 2 got along at first, then foster Macy jumped on my dog. There were several fights, a couple my Macie started because I think she was tired of being bullied. She even went missing for about 4 days & now I think it was because she was afraid. So the other Macy went to rescue & I had another female rescue. They got along except for 1 time when the foster got to close to her chew bone & she jumped on her. There were some rescue people here at the time & they decided my dog was vicious & I could not have fosters any more. I have since worked with another rescue but I have only had males & there have been no problems. I will say sometimes she snaps at others if she doesn't want them close to me or if I am eating. She will growl & snap but not attack. She has been jumping the fence & acts like she is going to attack dogs going by, a couple she has. I also have a small Chihuahua right now. She has jumped him twice, the first time I had to take him to the vet. She plays with him & loves on him then something happens. I can't risk her killing this dog or anyone else's. She is very stubborn & doesn't always listen. She has chewed a whole in my new privacy fence, she has broke out of crates. I don't want to get rid of her, she can be the sweetest dog in the world & I feel I have committed to this dog & love her dearly. But I can't let her hurt another dog. She is not aggressive with people, she barks but runs if anyone comes at her. I am at my wit's end, please help !

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.
