Without more details (where is Poppy when this happens--on the couch next to you perhaps?) it sounds like Poppy needs to be reminded that she isn't second in command. Your husband can spend a few minutes every day putting her through basic obedience commands. He can also be the one to feed her. And for now at least, she shouldn't be allowed on the couch or in the bed with you. I had to do this with my rescue, Stomps, when he became aggressive toward Lightning. It was sad not to be able to cuddle with him in bed or have him in my lap, but it stopped the aggression. There are a lot more things your husband can do, but others will have to remind me what they are. That's what worked for me.
