Exclamation Major problems

Hey everyone! I need some serious help. I got a girl prairie dog about 6 months ago and it has not been the best. The pet store I got her from did not take good care of her at all so I more rescued her than anything. When I got her she had a deep cut on her left paw and it's even deformed. Part of her top lip is gone and she was missing a lot of hair. So that aside she was hardly approachable at. She is doing a lot better now her hair is back and her cut heald nicely. But here's my problem. I can put my hand in her cage and pet her all I want but it doesn't seem like she get that I'm just petting her. I think she thinks that I'm trying to mate with her because her girl parts start doing there thing and she pushes my hand down to her bottom. And then when i get done petting her and leave the room she begins to bite and pull on the cage and she won't stop until she get tired and lays down which can take like 30min. Another thing is that she won't let me pick her up the only time I can is when she is sleepy and i pick her up and I can hold her like that for about 30 seconds then she figures out what's going on then she will do what ever she can to get away. She bites a lot. Also when ever she get nervous she bits and pulls on her nails! So I'm asking if I need to get her space or what because I'm lost and every website I go to does have anything like this. Im not sure how old she is. Please help I love her so much and I don't want to get rid of her.
