Default My friend's puppy growls at me....

My friend has a 3-month-old German Shepherd puppy. They have only had her a week. She was very shy and is now becoming a bit more animated. When I walk in the door she growls at me and hides. I wonder if it's because she doesn't know me. They have three people that live there and she seems to be comfortable with them. I've only seen her twice. Today I brought her an antler and some cooked chicken trying to bribe her in to my good graces. Didn't work. I thought dogs were suppose to be intuitive and know what a pushover I am lol? Is she too young and uncertain? I may end up being the dog sitter so I need some direction.
Thx, R

Just sit on the floor with some treats or kibble and let her come to you. Just give it some time. I am sure she will warm up to you.
