It sounds like she has an aversion to men and the crate. That can be worked out, but it will take both of you, and you may have to really take over for awhile. It is all about being positive! Since you have pit experience, you know how smart and stubborn they can be. You just have to win their hearts and trust. That can take time. If this is the only “issue” that you have with her, thank your lucky stars. It can work and will work. Just take your time. 🙂
