Pup does not like dogs

Hi! My 9 month old GSD puppy is afraid of dogs and is starting to get aggresive when she encounters one. When she was younger, we tried to socialize her with dogs but she was just too afraid of them that she would run away or jump into my arms to get away from them. I have tried giving her rewards for all positive actions with them but its just not working out well. Whenever she sees one in a fence, yard, or just at the park she freaks out and tries to charge after them. Its become a little bit better when it comes to seeing a dog through a fence but at the park she just tries to charge so badly that i cant play frisbee with her their or do tracking with her because she will just charge! She knows her sit, stay, leave it, and comepretty well but will just ignore me when i ask her to do these whenever she sees a dog. Please help! Thanks!
