Our sweet black lab was rescued as a 9 month old pup from

Customer Question

Our sweet black lab was rescued as a 9 month old pup from the streets of a town in W. Virginia. She has had basic training. She likes kids, adults -- with the exception of my son (a tall white man) and one other man who is a long time friend. The big problem is her growling and lunging at other dogs while she is walking on leash. Doesn't matter is the other dog is on leash or not. Mostly hates yellow labs. We want to protect her and other dogs. Suggestions?
