Not to worry! I also adopted a 6 month doodle who had been raised on a farm. The first day he wouldn't come out of his crate - we had to carry him outside to 'do his business' then carry him back in. He wouldn't play with toys, wouldn't eat treats, wouldn't walk around the house, didn't respond to us at all! In the first 4 days I had him to the vet 3 times, convinced something was wrong with him.
To make a long story short, 3 months later and he is a totally different dog! He follows all of us around the house, loves his toys & treats, & loves to play fetch! Full of personality - which keeps coming out of his shell more and more every day. He's still pretty shy around other people, but we're working on it.
Just be patient and give her lots of love. She'll come around before you know it.
Also - we put him in doggie daycare 1-2 times per week pretty early on. He was really happy to be around other dogs and it helped him to socialize with other people too.
Just out of curiousity, where did you get her from?
