Default Rescued Gsd problems

Hello all,
We rescued a beautiful 3 year old gsd the weeks ago. Initially she was well behaved, although nervous, and built up a bond with her.
Now it's a different story...
Won't let my other two dogs have affection and constantly takes everything off them, treats, toys etc. Anyone who comes in the house she will constantly bark at, I remind visitors to totally ignore her but regardless it doesn't improve. She is always barking/chasing - the cats, again initially just ignored them. Will listen to me sometimes and at other times in invisible. On our walk yesterday she was running with my lurcher and a loud yelp.. I'm pretty sure this was accidental but a big chunk of für and a bloody graze was on my lurcher (also rescued /nervous).
This poor dog has had three homes already and I don't want to give her up so will try any ideas anyone has.
Thank you

Have you tried contacting a trainer?

I would get her into some training? It's hard when they are older as everything is already imprinted in them. But I don't think it's too late with good consistent training.

She sounds insecure to me. I agree, some training, even at your local animal control (here in Mesquite the Animal control dept has basic training) could do a world of good.

Post eight general info:

Cats:

And these:
Two or More Dogs

Leerburg Dog Training | Dealing with the Dominant Dog

None of these precludes hiring a trainer but it's all pretty much stuff you should know anyway.
