I'm sorry to hear that. It's so hard for a dog to get used to people being around and then finding herself alone. How old is she?
I know that other forum members will also offer advice, so I'll just suggest trying to stay very calm when you get home and ignoring her until she is calm. If you give her attention when she's fussing, she'll think fussing will get attention from you. If you praise her and give her treats when she's being calm and has four paws on the floor, she'll be calm more.
Try to find the time to work with her each day. Ignore her for a little while, leave for a little while, return and ignore her for a little while, then engage with her when she's calm. Each time you leave, change how long you're gone. One minute, then five minutes, then two minutes, then 10 minutes, etc. The reason it's good to ignore her before leaving and before engaging with her after returning home is to keep your leaving and returning very boring. Boring = calm. Calm = relaxed. Relaxed = healthy.
Please keep in touch.
