Realize nothing comes easy with a rescue.Do you know what her past was? She is very insecure right now ,you are her sole companion,and she doesn't understand what to expect from you at this time. She may follow and whine the whole time you have her simply because it may take more time than that for her to settle in. You need to treat her as a new puppy where her bathroom habits are concerned. Take her out after she eats and about every 20 min. there after,and before bed time. Keep her confined to a certain area of the house when you go away or get a crate. Put a dog bed in your room ,if you want her to sleep there teach her that is where she goes when it is bedtime.The trick to keep her off the bed is not allowing her on it to begin with. Repitition in training ,persistance,and concistance, will work. Explain to your neighbors that you are doing this and tell them there may be times she barks ask them to alert you to it so you can take steps to deal with it,also explaine these things take time and you don't want to make it unpleasent for anyone but you would appreciate their patience.We'll try to help you but the work falls on you.Good Luck
