I don't think she shows body signs typical of being beaten, persay. I say she's a very nervous dog and is showing typical appeasement signals, which I tend to see in very nervous dogs in breeds like border collies and aussies. But the fact that she's curling in to him and placing her paw on him, I don't see this at all as fear of him.
