Default GSD teaching new puppy aggression?

My 3-year old GSD shows aggression when we are meeting new dogs. I am getting a new puppy (Chihuahua) and I am wondering how to make sure my new guy doesn't pick up any of my GSD's habits when greeting others.

I now put my GSD on leash for all greetings because he is hard to predict, great with many dogs and then aggressive with others...I tried various things but now I just put him on leash and we are fine- he is well trained so i always have a chance to leash him before we do any greetings.

Do you think my new puppy will learn to greet aggressively from my older dog? What can I do to prevent this?
