Have you tried her with different bones? Chicken pieces, lamb/pork ribs etc? Maybe try her favourite meat with bone.
Maybe try smaller ones, from small game birds or poussin/cornish hen? The ribs especially are tiny.
If all else fails you can feed minced meats with bone in, ideally whole ground carcasses if you can get them.

Hey, I am in no way experienced , only just starting out myself but I had the same problem and today I got my chi to eat the bones in a chicken wing tip by breaking them with a hammer and cutting the wing up into little pieces ... and mixing in a teaspoon of probiotic yogurt which he adores! It took us 45 minutes to get through 25grams of wing tip and Ihad to hand feed the lot but it was worth it to hear the odd bone crunch! Anything runny that your pup loves, a really tasty gravy maybe?
