Other dog owners who don't understand

How do you deal with other dog owners who don't understand my dog doesn't want to meet their dog. Tonight I was on the park. I go a bit later so I can avoid other dogs. There was a dog off the leash on the other side of the park. I tried to move passed quickly but the other dog started coming over. I politely shouted over to the owners to keep it away. They didn't do anything . Tilly went crazy the other dog ,who wasn't aggressive , started jump all over her. I had to pick Tilly up with her barking and whinning with the other dog jumping all over me. I shouted the owner to get his dog away. Eventually The owner sauntered over and removed his dog. I got Tilly off the park and got her home shaking. Tilly is a rescue dog we are trying to rehabilitate. I'm just really frustrated. I walk her late in a quiet park. She is always on the lead and I'm trying to get her used to dogs at a safe distance. This kind of thing just sends her backwards.
