|Yes, she sounds fear aggressive, which is hardly surprising if she's been attacked in the past.
Working with a good behaviourist is recommended. Working with fear and/or aggression issues is often a long process though and you have to be prepared for lots of repetitive training sessions around other dogs.
My own little terrier, Missy, also has aggression issues which more than likely stem from fear too. I worked with a behaviourist for nearly 2 years, but only started seeing improvements about 18 months into the training. Now i train on my own with her and we've seen even bigger improvements the past year or two. So, change is possible with time.
