My family and I brought home our rescue pup yesterday. From what we were told about her, she has an "old soul" and loves to be pet and to be around others. We did a lot of research about bringing a dog into our home before she got here, and though we felt prepared we now feel a bit lost as to what to do. We knew that she would not immediately be her true self, but she has barely left her crate in the 24 hours we've had her. We think she is just adjusting to her new environment, but she seems scared to leave that room, like she thinks it's the only place she's allowed to be. There is no access to outside from the floor her crate is on (probably a bad move on our part) and she refuses to go down the stairs. She also gets very panicked when we try to pick her up to bring her downstairs and outside. She has not gone the bathroom any of the times we've brought her outside, though she did have an accident overnight which we were expecting because she didn't go to the bathroom all day. We are worried that if we can't get her downstairs and outside often enough she will develop a habit of holding it and then going potty overnight, but she downright refuses to be led or brought down the stairs. I know this is a lot of information all at once, but as first time dog owners we are very overwhelmed! She did not eat this morning, and we are worried that if we push too hard to get her to come out of the room or go downstairs we will end up traumatizing her which is the last thing we want to do!
