Does she have a coat and some booties? Some dogs don't tolerate boots, but if she can get used to them, it might really help.

Our Grace is a little put off by the temps, too. If it's -20F or below, she doesn't want to go out at all. I just keep telling her to 'potty' and we stay out till she does--she's gotten to the point now where she knows I mean it and she doesn't dilly-dally.... She doesn't tolerate booties, but she's more willing to go out if I put the dog parka on her.
