I have a 3yo 50lb beagle mix. She's friendly, but she can be rather nervous/insecure with other dogs. If another dog doesn't respect her boundaries (not necessarily being mean, but maybe just too much exuberance) she'll snap at them to ask for some space. And I once had an incident where she snapped at my friend's young dog, and the other dog responded by attacking her (not aggression luckily; I believe the other dog was just roughhousing). It was very rattling and I'd hate to have that happen again.
She can play very well with other dogs if they don't overwhelm her, but I'm worried if she snaps at another dog that the owner will view it as aggression and get mad at me.
Should I chance it or no? I'd love for her to get better socialized.

I think you should! It'll be good for her to get more exposure to other animals. I'd just be super careful and pay attention to her and how she seems to be reacting to things. If it seems too much then you should leave, introduce it slowly and she'll get more used to it.0
