i know, but I don't want to baby her and let her lay on my lap all the time and have her be a scaredy cat... Is it OK to let her come to me every time she is scared?

and when she goes outside she is fine, runs around, plays, the whole nine yards. But, inside she turns into this shivering,whimpering, little thing...

She is adorable though...

She won't be a scaredy cat. I helped foster some beagle lab mix puppies and I held them when they were scared. They seem to be just fine now. My neighbor adopted 2 of them. They wern't even scared of the thunderstorm we had yesterday.

She is also going to look at you as her pack leader.

But the first few days, I don't think it will hurt to baby her.

Can't wait to see pictures. I have never had a little puppy, so I don't have a lot of advice. Just give her time and she will get over the fear! I don't think it will hurt to baby her, either, but I wouldn't let her sleep in your bed right now. I would get her crate trained asap. That will help with potty training and it gives her a 'den' or 'safe place'

Lots of patience!!

OK, first off - CONGRATS!!! I miss the times when Chloe was a young pup.

Give her time with getting used to her new surroundings. She just left her littermates and her mommy. Don't be afraid to babying her, just me moderate about it. Don't leave her to face new things alone, encourage her and praise her on ever little positive thing that she does. Don't praise negative things and stuff you don't want to encourage.
About food and treats, she may not eat much in the next day or two, it's fine, as long as she drinks water. It's just the trauma still.

Waiting for those pictures
