Prevent destruction by removing things she can destroy, and monitoring. No shoes, socks, whatever left out.. and if she's really determined, keep her tethered to you. Also introduce her to crating. A week and a half is still VERY new... chances are she was never taught what was appropriate, and chances are she is feeling a bit of anxiety. She also sounds bored.

What kind of obedience work are you doing? How are YOU interacting with her? What are you doing to work her brain, since her body is in recovery?

This is far, far, far from out of control. Rethink your expectations of a brand new adoptee and your relationship will progress much quicker.
