How long have you had the dog? I got a dog from much the same circumstances. She had been in a box stall from the time she was a puppy. When they found they could not get her bred, they wanted to get rid of her. When I first got her, she would bolt off if you came near her. She would not come through a door or gate unless you stood way back, then she would bolt through. It took over a year before I could open a door and she would come through it. I did have the advantage of having other dogs so she learned a lot from them. She still has the occasional time when she does not want to come in but I would just close the door and try again later.

I got her in August 2017 and it has only been in the last year that I could walk up to her outside and put a leash on her and she wags her tail all the time and comes to me for pats all the time. She finally acts like a normal dog but is still terrified of anyone other than me.
