Question about a one year old

Will this dog be able to be trained and get used to other dogs?
I'm just worried she might act out and take off.
Is one year to old for her to learn to calm and nice?

Do you already have another dog, is that what worries you? The ad says, "not good with other dogs" but maybe the owner is assuming so because she's reactive. Hard to say.

Possibly, it depends on what the problem is. Could you find a trainer or behaviorist to come visit the dog with you? A trained eye could be invaluable

Or you could take the dog and sign up for classes or private lessons and work on the issue. I don't believe there's a cutoff age for learning

If she truly is dog aggressive, would you need to bring her with you when you visit your friends that have dogs?

It's impossible to say, really. Her owners might not understand why she's barking and jumping at other dogs when she's out on a walk (they already said she's overexcited when the leash comes out) or they might know something - like she's attacked another dog in their home, and that's why they need to find her a new one. But in this scenario, it could be that the other dog in the home is another female, so it could be just a female/female thing. You need more information about her.
