Dog Aggressive Since Having Puppies?

My dog had a litter of pups last year in August. Since then she has been aggressive (barking, running up to people/dogs, and launching at random people). The weird thing I can't understand about it is, it's not towards everyone and it's not constantly.

We kept one of the pups with us and at first I put this down to her protecting the pup. I thought she would grow out of it once she realised she was safe and staying with us, but this wasn't the case. She even does it when the pup isn't with us, so now I am trying a muzzle her to see if this can help calm her down.

Any advice would be great as I really would like to get her back to the way she was before, I was wondering if having her neutered might help?

I would consult with the vet. The pregnancy and childbirth may have altered her hormones, just like in humans.

It is not uncommon for female dogs to become more aggressive after having pups. Neutering will help. Talk it over with your Vet because besides neutering there are other things that help too.

Interestingly enough, it appears the term "neutered" is applicable to both sexes. Here's a Wikipedia article that talks about it a bit more.
