Super skiddish, scared JRT

by Shannon
(Florida)

hi, we just got our first JRT and brought her home last night. She has been an outside dog and lived in some people's back yard in a kennel. I don't believe she has had much human contact, except with the families children. She is soooo skiddish and scared! She won't let my husband or myself even pet her. When I take her out for a walk every tiny noise makes her jump! I think even the wind scares her. She does play with the kids though. I believe she is approximately a year old? I know we have only had her for a day but I just wanted to ask if there is any advice on helping her get over this.
