It will take a little bit of time. They are not usually real socialized if they are a bit older. I adopted a LD from a shelter that lived on a farm her whole life. Not socialized, but she has come around nicely. It took about 2 weeks for her to get comfy, and then she turned into a love bug! She loves the kids, and she is wonderful! I adopted her at the age of 2, and she is now 3. I got her last July, and she is the best. I don't think you will have any problems. She just need to feel comfortable in her new home.
