Is Scrappy still eating well and playing?

Yes she is still eating and playing, she has done it on and off for an hour

Thanks for the info....I would worry that she may be hypoglycemic. This is common in the smaller breeds and you did not say what kind she is....

Give her some Karo Syrup or sugar water now to see if that will help.

Let me know if this helps....if she is eating and drinking normally, then this may be some form of fear or anxiety being in a new home.
