Also if she is pottying in her crate maybe it is to big?  You should also only give her a small part of the house to roam in preferably a room with no  The more area she has to roam around the more space she has that she thinks is her sleeping and potty area.  One room of the house, when she is housebroken you can open up a second room and so on.

Where did you get her from?  Was it a breeder or a pet store?  If the pup was kept in a small area that she slept in and pottied in then that is the problem.  Puppies from pet stores are usually from puppy mills, the dogs are all kept in small containers.  In pet stores they are also kept in a small area.  There may be other problems.  Are you free feeding her which means she can eat anytime she wants to.  Same with water.  She should get water (about 1/2 cup) right before she goes outside.  She should go out about every three hours.  Cut the water off in the evening around 9.  She should eat three times a day morning, noon, and evening at around 6-7pm.  Her color...well that is a different story.  German shepherds are like suprise packages.  They can look one way as a pup and completely different as a grown up.  She might have more brown as an adult then now, she might not.  Also what are you feeding her, and how much.  She should be able to eat her food within about 15-20 minutes are you pick it up and try again later.  (at her next feeding time)  Also put a spoon of cottage cheese in one of her meals that will help her ears pirk up.  If you have any more questions feel free to email me at any time.
Most of all Have fun!!!

I have been training dogs for about 14 years now.  My original training began in Germany at a German Shepherd club.  I have always read a lot of books and watched other trainers to get idea's, tips, and to see what mistakes they make.  I love watching the dog whisperer because a lot of the things he does I do myself.  At this point I am very  I haven't seen any bad posting about him, but the way I see it is if it works then someone else will have to prove him wrong.  I haven't seen anything bad happen to any of the dogs that he works with.  He is always finding ways to get the dogs attention to what is actually going on.  LOL The funny thing is watching the difference between when ceaser has the dog under control and when the owner takes over again.  I actually have a friend that owns a boxer that is a year old.  He is perfect when I work with him, but since she never follows through with her commands and lets him do whatever he wants she has a problem with him.  Even when she is putting on a training collar he is chewing on her arms and legs and moving about.  If I walk up to him he sits calmly and lets me put it on.  Now mind you its not that he couldn't take over me if he wanted to.  I am a short little 5'  Its all about respect.  Thats the way I see it.

I can't help you in the looking department either, but I can give you a few tips.  When you fill out an application for a place attach a doggy resume to it.  I have one of file for my gsd.  It has his shot dates, his training back ground, it says he is learning to be a search and rescue dog, and small information that they know he is not obnoxious.  Might want to try that.
