How old was that pup? If it was older than about 4 months she probably told him to back off, like adult dogs do to these little brats. There is not much you can do against an off leash approach besides stepping in front of your dog and block the other dog. But that is complicated sometimes. Technically a "pup" is younger than 4 months but many people keep using this life stage for marketing or excuses. Tell an older dog, "he is just a puppy" when in fact it is an adolescent challenging him. No excuses in the dog world
