I agree she may just not be ready. I have no experience with bottle raising puppies, but I have done kittens. One litter, the 2 boys were perfectly happy to give gruel a try and swam in it every time, requiring baths after every meal. Their sister was having none of it. One week later, she started eating the gruel, very neatly, and never requiring a bath. I am convinced she just did not want to make a spectacle of herself like her brothers, so wouldn't even try until she could do it properly. They are all different. Keep offering, but don't worry too much.
