At what age does the socialization process end for puppies?

I just bought a 5 month old pap, and he’s as timid as ever – shaking when people are around and choosing to hide in her crate all the time.  Her breeder kept her in a cage most of the time, alone without much interaction with other dogs/humans.

Is she too old for “re-socialization”? Will she never be as friendly and adventurous as most other papillons? If I bring her around and expose her to more people and surroundings, will she have the chance to be ‘normal’?
