Get a dog ball you can insert a treat in, throw the ball, and have the treat of the same type in your hand, call fetch, and when they return the ball, reward them with the treat they can't get out of the ball. It worked for my animals.

Take the toy, hopefully a cloth toy that she can clamp down on with her mouth, and chew on, and hold it in front of her. Try to get her to take it from your hand. If she will tug on it while you are holding it, play with her like that for awhile.
Then, throw the toy, and I'll bet she will run after it, pick it up, and might bring it back. That would be a starting point.
She has to want to play "tug" with the toy first.
