Default Rescued Golden Retriever

We recently adopted a Golden Retriever male, around 4 years of age. He is very scared, nervous and neurotic right now. I am wondering if this is just because his environment and family are new to him, or if he has been abused? Also, he is scared to come into our house (my husband has to carry him through the doorway, then he is fine) and he follows cars (follows them not chasing them), which worries me. Any advice in these areas?
