she could be but my first suggestion is please get her spayed I know when she was sick you couldn't but now you can we don't need more unwanted puppies in the world plus if you get her spayed she will live a longer happier and healthier life, I would also say use a spray bottle soon enough she will just know to stop when she sees it and you won't have to spray her, also small dog maybe she is protecting her mommy on it's me or the dog what they did with sevral dogs like this was the treats, toys, food and water started just coming from the person they were mean to instead of their favorite person it seemed to work really well you could also do a reward system with clicker training but please get her spayed before she has puppies she is old enough to have puppies and also dogs are old enough to get fixed when they are 2-3 pounds now.
