Default GSD playing rough with new puppy? (moved to General Behavior)

I haven't posted on here in a few years, but this forum has gotten me through so much before and after I got my GSD, Maylee, 5 years ago.

I recently brought home a 9 week old Golden Retriever puppy. Maylee has been great with him, but a lot of times when they are in the backyard playing Maylee has gotten quite rough. She seems to get over excited and wants to continue playing, even after it seems to puppy has had enough. She bites his neck to the point I think the puppy's head is inside her mouth! And there has been a few times the puppy has run away crying and trying to hide.

I have been trying to practice recall with them when I feel it gets to this point. But a lot of times the puppy keeps going back to her for more. Any advice or suggestions?
