Chihuahua/Pug mix suddenly aggressive with owner

Here`s another great article:

My ex and I adopted a chihuahua/pug mix (Tot) about 3 or 4 years ago while we were together. She came with some behavioral issues, the most prominent being aggression toward other dogs. She snarls, bares teeth, growls, and will attack if pushed. While we were together we managed to keep this behavior under control, even around my rambunctious heeler mix. Tot was put on fluoxetine and it seemed to help a little. When we split up about a year and half ago Tot became the only dog in the house and my ex took her off of the fluoxetine and things seemed to be hunky-dory.

Until last Monday. All of a sudden Tot has been snarling and biting at my ex whenever she tries to touch her or do anything she would normally do with her. Tot has not done this with anyone else (including me who hadn't seen her in a while and wearing a face mask). My ex treats this dog very well, and has never hit her or anything like that and I have no reason to believe anything like that has been going on since we split up. Nothing major has changed in their routine.

We took her to the vet and he prescribed fluoxetine again, along with trazodone. He also recommended hiring an in home behavior specialist. My ex cannot afford that at this time, but she has gotten her the meds.

Has anyone had anything like this happen before? Any literature, videos, or anecdotes about dealing with this kind of behavior would be greatly appreciated. We're not sure what to do if this aggression toward her owner continues.
