Yeah, if she hates the crate that much I think forcing it right now is going to be counterproductive. I would figure out some other dog safe space for her (but don't leave all the dogs out without supervision).

That said, learning to like the crate is one of those good dog life skills. Have you tried "crate games"? If you google that term there's some good advice on how to teach your dog that crate=good times.

You could try getting baby gates so you could at least confine her to a safer room and prevent her from, say, eating the sofa. Also, you can spray bitter spray on the drywall if nothing else helps. I have had luck with the brand called "bitter yuck."
