It would for me. Due to her age and that you've only had her for a couple of days, I'd be focusing on bonding with you rather than meeting a bunch of new people and some dogs. And if she is a bit timid you really want to be especially careful not to toss too much at her too quickly and overwhelm her. With the right kind of socialization her demeanor should be relaxed and happy. If she's at all stressed you're doing more harm than good.
