You've only had her a few days, remember she is just a baby.
Be patient so she realizes she is safe. Who knows what she has been thru in her short life.
She needs to learn to trust you
Give her time the Rewards will be huge!!

I'm no expert, but it took Dani 2 weeks to start acting 'nomal' when I brought her home at 3 months. She went from being outside playing with her siblings, parents and a bunch of other dogs to being inside with myself and occasionally some kids and DH (dear husband) as he work off.
For Dani, I couldn't push too hard or she would just shut down. So I spent a lot of time just sitting on the floor talking to her. I read books out loud. She's awsome now after taking the advice of some folks on here. The biggest thing was being patient and working with her, not against her.

She may have been a kennel dog if she was at the breeders for 5 months. If so she hasn't been socialized and knows nothing about the world outside her kennel. Take it slow and gradually introduce her to new things and let her get comfortable with them.
A well socialized 5 month old should adjust quickly, one that is not will take some patience. Be gentle with her.

I didn't read it that this pup was imported. I read the OP to mean that the pup's parents had been imported.
Not that it makes much difference, except (perhaps) for how long the pup traveled to get to the new home and how tiring that trip would be?

|cliffson1||This is a five month old puppy, I have imported many many pups, they should not come out timid, having said that, I am sure she will spark up some as she gets more comfortable.....but confidence should not be lost because of new environment, IMO. Give her some time:.|

|Chip Blasiole||While I'm a big believer in genetics and their impact on behavior, the breed founder said something like, "Show me the dog and I will tell you about his master." You say you are "really shook up." Your dog is feeding off of your anxiety. Loosen up with your dog and teach him you are the source of all good things.|

I agree with everyone else. Her world just got tossed on it's head so she's going to feel her way thru it for a bit.
You may want to walk around with a ziplock of REAL treats in your pocket for awhile (can mix it with her kibble so she gets her meals this way too) and so you can constantly reward her for being near/by you and even start up some very basic ONLY POSITIVE based training.
