I just got a 8 year old German shepherd the owners before me told me she was Shptzhund trained and showed me the tattoo in her ear. I have tried giving her commands like sit, lay, and stay she will fallow them when we are inside but when we go outside she only listens half the time. what should i do?

She's a brand new dog, doesn't know you, doesn't know her environment. Give her peace and let her settle a bit before demanding tasks that require a lot of focus.

When she's settled a bit, you should work on getting her attention when she's outside by offering her tasty treats whenever she "checks in" or looks your way. Then work on the easiest command first and make it solid by asking for it under a ton of different conditions and rewarding big time when she listens.
