agressive biting

My JRT is a 2 1/2 year old female, spayed at 6 months, wire haired, 11 lbs. When I adopted her, she was 7 mos old, and was in a pen w/6 other dogs, and was fine. From the moment I got her home, she has been very aggressive w/other dogs, to the point where she has bitten me trying to get to them.

Recently, she has bitten me and my eight year old when we move her (ie off of a bed or a chair), or try to pick her up. She had not been aggressive to either of us in the past, although she does exhibit aggressive behavior to other animals. She has been checked by the vet and has a clean bill of health. I welcome any suggestions on how I can curb her aggressive behavior before I need to consider giving her up.
