Mmhmm. For how long do you have her now?
Maybe she is still grieving over the loss of her family. Maybe there is something medical going on or maybe she just doesn't have the constitution yet.
How far ist "a couple of Blocks"? How hot is it?
I have a six month old and even in a 100 degrees I don't have to drag her with me. If you have to drag them, there is something wrong.
There are so many reasons why she's shutting down. It could even be fear related or because she never learned to walk on a leash properly.
Rule out any medical reason first. Take her to the vet and see if everything is alright with her, and than go to a good trainer and have him come with you on a walk so he can see what is going on.
