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
