Waaaayyyyyy to early to judge. Work on her health first and let her feel safety with and without you at home. The world can wait for her to heal up. Give her 1-3 months before asking any of these questions. She is not well and she has gone through SO many changes emotionally. Let her be, calm and quiet, and boost her confidence with kindness. BTW -- some dogs never ever ever play with anything. I have hd 2 of 5 never touch a toy. Sorry to sound all touchy-feely, but get her well, let her adjust, and then start exposing to the world and your activities and requirements when she feels better. Forcing too much too fast will do you NO good at all.
