I have the exact same problem with my Mal. Started when he was about a year and a half old.  He is neutered. I carry dog mace with me as I am terrified of being approached by a stray. I have taken him to obedience school and he pretty much acts like an angel in class.  Riding in the car if he sees a dog he gets crazy and snaps at my other dog. Its called barrier frustration.  Do a search and you will find some good info.  Have been working with him and recently he has been able to meet a few other dogs while on leash, but others he goes off on.
