Default Help!! Socialization Questions?

Hi all,

We decided to add a puppy to our family. We currently have a 3.5 yr old gsd. We rescued a 14 wk gsd from a bad situation/ puppy mill. No socializing appears to have happened.

My question is that she is scared of everything and she lunges and growl at all dogs even thing she doesn't know... i.e. a bird, what are my best actions to take? I'm looking for advice from anyone that has had experience this before.

After one week she is already getting along with my boy now. But anything new she gets too stressed and scared and acts out with barking and growling. We had our first puppy class today, but she was so stressed all she did was bark/ growl at the other puppies. She has no drive for food or toys. How long should I give her or is this something I will have to fight for awhile.

What do I do???

Thanks for any advice.
