It sounds to me like you have a perfectly good dog but she is not comfortable interacting with strange dogs. I would simply keep her on leash when there is a change of coming into contact with a strange dog. Neither of my dogs are ever allowed to interact with strange dogs. Ever. No need. My family is the pack. I protect them from all outside dangers including any strange dogs. Are they fearful? absolutely not. That does not matter. What mattes is that they are safe and other people and other peoples dogs are safe.
