Allow yourself time to bond. GSDs are aloof, and if she has no drive for toys right now, then find a high value food treat....sliced hot dog. When you're with her, your voice should be soft and sound like a seven year old girl. Your general approach should be low rather than high, in that your slow hand should come from below her head rather than from above. Whenever she approachs you, offer a slice of hot dog and a calming voice in that littlegirl tone, even if you're a 250lb man.

Read/research how to develop a recall.....after you have developed a bond. Time is your friend...don't rush.
