Roxie 2year old german
I adopted Roxie a few days ago but she's not active at all.
Since adoption, she's been more happy, But she's not quite active for a German.
the only way she'll leave a spot in the house is if you put a leash on her.
otherwise, She'll sleep all day in that same spot.
I spend time trying to train it without a leash but right when i detach the leash from her, she will go running into that same spot she's been at all day long.
I take it on 1 mile walks everyday since i've adopted Roxie.
Any tips how I can get her to open up more?

I don't pretend to be an expert, but in my experience with rescues, etc., they need at least a couple of weeks to adjust. Ours was very quiet and reserved and oh-so-good for a month or so, then he started to relax. I remember that he also would prefer to hang out in the same spots, now he's much more relaxed and still has his favorite spots but will try new places.

You may not see her shine until a few months go by. She is adjusting!
