|Honestly, it sounds like she was simply pushed to her limits with the other child, and nobody was bothering to advocate for her as they should have.
Expect her to be puppy-ish until after about three years old - they tend to start finally settling down a little after three. That said, each dog is still individual, but they can be very puppy-like for quite a few years lol.
I wouldn't be surprised if she is purebred Rottweiler, or a mix either way. Regan was VERY compact and short for the breed, but was from large German lines. Maya was tall and odd-looking(if you look at her profile you'll see what I mean) and didn't look purebred at all, but was Regan's sister. It's amazing what poor breeding can do to a breed.
She sounds like she will do fine settling into a family that knows what a dogs boundaries are and how to respect them, and that she'll do great with the proper exercise and training. Thank you for saving her and wanting to help and work with her. And even bigger thanks for realizing that she needs time to settle and passing up the 4th of July celebrations and visits so she can do that. She'll appreciate the one on one time with you and the other dogs.
