I don't know anything about the elbow issue. I HAVE heard, second hand, that puppies who are raised in an environment where they don't have enough room to move around can have weak ligaments, and that these often strengthen with good, regaular but not excessive exercise in a larger environment.
As far as the gravel road thing is concerned, I think that may just be that it is uncomfortable on her soft little baby feet. Kodi, at 3 will still chooses not to walk on sharp gravel if there is a choice. I'm not sure that means that there is anything wrong with your puppy.
