In what way exactly?
From the pic how would you best move forward in helping her?
Iím looking into the best way I can start growing my own food for her to help give her variety.
And trying to plan a table table to build her that will be move suited. Then after that I will sort out outside accommodation where she wonít be bothered by the dogs.

Looks like a graeca of some sort, but the pyramiding makes it harder to tell.
Definitely female, and definitely not a horsfield:0)
A picture from further away and from above might help more to ID.
Normally I can tell if ibera or graeca from plastron but these markings I dont know:0(
She needs a really good diet and not over fed, as the pyramiding is quite bad. It wont reverse the damage done, but with a good diet it will be masked more:0)
Weeds, weeds and more weeds:0)

This tortoise could be a hybrid?
Hard to tell with accelerated growth:0)
