Pitbull agression with my other dog (GS)

Hi, this is my first time posting here and hopefully someone can help me. I have a 2 year old male pitbull mix (neutered) that has always been the sweetest, calmest, most adorable thing. He has been very patient with the German Shepherd female puppy (she is 1 yr old and was spayed last month). She is a sweet girl but very hyper and annoying...specially with him. Since she got home she's always been the dominant, and she takes the toys, bed, attention from him. He has been so patient and sometimes he would growl a little here and there but nothing major. This Sunday she tried to take the bed from him and for the first time he snapped, and not only he growled, he attacked her, and she cried/screamed, surrended, but he would not let her go! (my husband had to separate them and that was not easy!). Needless to say it was very scary to watch, and I kept them separate that night. The next morning they went potty together they seemed fine, but when they came back in, he sniffed her bottom and with no reason attacked her again and didn't want to let her go!!! For "NO" reason! unless the spaying changed her hormones and he smells different in her??? I've been keeping them separate and I feel very stressed by the situation thinking maybe I have to re-home one of them??? I'm worried this could escalate and he could end up hurting her really bad or worse :-( . I have an appt with a behaviorist later today, but wanted to get the opinion of other PB owners here....if they have ever faced a similar situation and how was it dealt with? Please HELP!!!

Bull breeds are genetically predisposed to dog aggression. The behaviorist may be able to help you to adapt to it. But it's not something that can be trained away. If the behaviorist tells you it is, then you need to find a new behaviorist.
Crate and rotate or rehome will be the only 100% safe options.
In the mean time, get a bunch of break/parting sticks and keep them around the house and yard for times where there's a slip up.

Most importantly learn how to use the parting sticks and never grab the German Shepard if she is attacked and fighting back. I wont go into details just believe me.

Having a really nice nail gun is pointless if you cant build anything with it.. like a nail gun a parting stick is a tool and without the knowledge on how to use one and multiple ppl there with that knowledge they're useless. It is damn near impossible for one able bodied, knowledgeable man to part 2 dogs by himself. Let alone someone new to the situations, tools, and experience. Best bet is to go have the whole family learn the proper way to use a stick, their locations and who else in the house is capable of using them.

for no human reason.
from your post and description of your dogs, i would say you are making a common mistake of humanizing these animals. i have a little experience but i'm no expert. one thing all dog owners should know... dogs do what dogs do... not what a human does. their actions are not dictated by ideas of politeness, social norms, manners, etc. they don't have the capacity to "play nice" or "pretend" they like other dogs. they are driven by instincts, genetics, chemical signals.

crate and rotate.

Please, please, please get break sticks and research how to use them. I made the STUPID mistake of not using one and used my bare hands to pull my dog off my other dog just last week. I am suffering big time. I have stitches and almost lost 1/3 of my finger, and my finger is broken into 6 pieces. I have had the bones reset twice now, and still may be looking at surgery to place pins etc. I grabbed the break stick and used it to part them after my finger was mangled and it was SO quick, easy, and effective. I wish I would have done it properly the first time.

I thought you had your dogs managed and everything was fine at home again?
