Another general suggestion is to go to a neutral fenced in area. Then, let the old (fearful?) dog approach the socialized dog. We used to use my dog to help socialize fear-aggressive dogs. We put my dog in the fenced area, then let the fearful dog loose. The fearful dog would run up and bark, and mine would ignore him... This kept up until the fearful one realized that he was not in danger, then he approached my dog to interact and eventually play.

You can't do this if you're worried that the fearful dog will fight or bite...
