Social Misfit

I rescued my dog from one of the local rescue places. Vet thinks he's mostly Norfolk terrier. Problem is he was never given the chance to socialize with other people or dogs. Woman told me he loves to sit in your lap 24/7 which she allowed him to do. At first would growl at anyone who came in the house. Doesn't give them the time of day now but won't go to most of them either. I can live with that. Biggest problem is he's a wreck around other dogs. Scared to death of most of them. All but two to be exact. One was older dog we had when we got him. Joined at the hip until older one died. And there is one dog down the street that he actually gets excited about and chases playfully 50% of the time when he sees him. Tried taking him to dog park and he just sat behind my leg shivering. How do I get him over this so he can enjoy company of other dogs? One last thing. At times when we are walking he acts like he wants to chase other dogs until they turn towards him and then his tail goes down and he moves to the opposite side. Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.
