German Shepherd > Timid and nervous adopted Shepherd.

We adopted a 3 year old female Shepherd, Kira,from a shelter about 2 weeks ago.She is very timid and nervous. She is very reluctant to leave our bedroom to go outside, etc., even when coaxed with treats that she really likes.
We have to put her leash on her most of the time and practically force her out of our room.
She often goes into "mule mode" and simply will not budge! She knows her name, but still will not come when called most of the time.
We understand she's new to our home and it will take time for her to feel at home, but it's getting very frustrating for us. We have lot's of love and patience and will definitely not give up on her.
If anyone has suggestions for us, they are both welcome and appreciated.

Thank you.
Tommy and Janet
