Unhappy Our Mellow Dog Has Started Being Aggressive

We have a very mellow four year old dog - a mix of some kind that looks like a dark, though somewhat smaller, Irish Wolfhound. Last fall, we got a puppy - who is a bit of a dope, and very inquisitive. Bella - the wolfhound - has always been very mellow, and played well with other dogs, but twice now when another dog has growled at Jack, she has suddenly got super aggressive. My mother has a very old West Highland Terrier, and Bella may well have killed him if I hadn't been standing right there. I'm guessing that she's protecting Jack, but I don't know, and she's large enough for this to be really scary. Any thoughts or suggestions as to what to do would be super helpful. We're trying to get Jack to be less invasive of other dogs spaces, but it's an uphill battle.
