How old is she?

You have only had her for 2 days, she needs to settle in and get to know you and her surroundings. Keep everything fun and pleasant, don't be too hard on her and don't expect too much from her right now.

IMO I think puppies should be out of their crates as much as possible. They should only be crated when you are not home, when you are sleeping or when you cannot watch them because you are busy. Puppies need to explore, play, socialize and they need to get their energy out.

Also, she is a mix so she will not be like a purbred GSD, she will not have the looks or temperment of a GSD. She could have both breeds temperments combined or she may not.

Sinister ~ black male GSD 3.11.09
Draven ~ male Dalmatian 6.30.13
