Five days ought to be enough for a pup of this age to start to show at least the first signs of settling in, even if she was upset by a very rough journey for some reason.

Pedigree would be good to see what we are looking at. Best of luck

I agree with Sunsilver.. dog has genetic softness....trip shouldn't be a problem...I've imported toy dogs from Europe and they were sound upon arrival. My husband does wait for this dog to come to him but she is terrified of people. If you approach her she runs out the doggie door. I don't think a true working dog should react this way. We've had highly titled imports for almost 40 years and I've never seen one this soft in temperament. NOT our first rodeo...puppy came from Eastern Europe. Still trying to work out something with the breeder so dont want to mention name but $3300 for a 6 month old spook is a bit much. She has also destroyed two gates if you leave her in an outside run and starts hollering. She is DDR breeding.

You might have already been 'around the block' a time or two, but unfortunately you could still have been 'taken'.
It does sound as though she is 'born spooky', I agree; but dogs are individuals, just because you imported something else long distance and nothing upset it, does not automatically mean nothing bad happened THIS trip. You may never know. But it never pays to close your mind to every possibility.

Yep no good socialization, you can have 100 badass gangstar strong dogs in your pedigree ,when this pup have nohing seen in the real world,and have contact with human an other dogs very difficult to repair must have a lot of patient and than maybe...........and maybe some other idiot destroy the pup you will never know what happened already in his short live , the risk from import some dogs
