She may have been abused. One of our dogs is terrified of the broom. He was beaten with one several times as a pup. It could also be that She may just be mildly aggressive when it comes to being forced to do something she doesn't want. I've also had dogs like this. Hopefully she'll relax around you in time, but try using positive reinforcement. Talk to her excitedly to get her to go outside. And give her w little treat when gets out. I'd put a hold on trying to force her out, reaching to pull her out etc. as much as you can. Get her excited with her tail wagging to get her up and moving. Sorry I don't know of any dog forums. I'm just going off of my own experience. All the dogs I've had my entire life are rescued or born into the family.
