Well, 1. It may be mainly due to harmonal changes, the dogs attains the maturity at 6 to 9 months, they may show aggressive behavior during maturity (stray dog) 2. The changes mainly Becoz you may be showing too much love to the stray dog rather then your own pet, due to jealousy behaviour (they too are like humans) also it may do like that.
You are giving too much affection and attention to your dogs. Your dogs are interpreting your behaviour as your submission to them. They become aggressive due to possesiveness. Either for you or the territorial area or both. Please do not give any attention or call their names in pain or try to show that you are worried or scared through your tone. Be rough in your voice and keep them separate. Scolding beating or pulling back will never help but rather increase their aggression. Make them know that you are the Alfa of the pack and not them. Refer some basic dog training books.

Hi, tie the two dogs separately for some days, feed them separately, after their feeding finish take them for walk together and check once. Follow regular deworming, vaccinations for both.
