    Foster dog shows unusual aggression

    Hello,
    First off - thank you for reading this! Your energy is appreciate.
    I am fostering a wonderful Corgi/Beagle mix named Ramona. She is wonderful - sweet, energetic, and playful - BUT, she is unusually aggressive. I have two other dogs that she occasionally growls and snaps at (and other times, she is perfectly nice to them). I believe that it is food/territory aggression. However, today she also growled and snapped at me when I reached into her crate to take her out. She was chewing on a new bone that I gave her. I never thought that she would be so aggressive towards me directly. The incident was very unsettling. I have tried firmly saying 'No!', using the shaking a can filled with coins, and putting her in a time out. I know this is a little inconsistent. I guess I've just never had a dog with these kinds of issues. Help!!
