The frass thing is not unusual. Our first Boxer had never seen grass. Parvo scare in the Bay Area CA.
She was raised indoors and on concrete.

Give her time to settle in, no dog parks no "I thought my dog was friendly folks" and look at the 'Who Pets my Puppy or dog" pretty much the same as the advise on the Fearful Dog blog.

My guy was "people aggressive" so I did the "Who pets..." thing he turned out fine.

Update. 1 week post adoption:
So she is becoming far more social. Shes playing with the other dogs I have and while im working on stuff outside, she stays by my side. She continues to circle everyone including me before petting may begin. She has mastered the stairs after one pack of cheese. Boy does this dog love cheese and ice cubes.
Things are improving and im very hopfull they continue this way. I have this pheremone collar and plug ins that have really helped as she no longer whines in the crate
