Do NOT pick him up. That reinforces the fear response. Find a friend with a dog, not too big, that is socialized and invite them for a walk. Do that a couple of times, then bring them both into your yard, release them from their leashes, and ignore them. If you pup hides, that's okay, just DON'T talk to him, pet him, or pick him up. He WILL get used to the other dog with time. I KNOW this works because I used it to socialize my friend's dog. It only took lots of patience and 2 visits! Now our dogs are best friends.
