Id say go for it if it feels right to adopt her. I know ive walked by plenty of animals that just "spoke" to me and I hated when I couldnt get one.

while the dog is nice....I say go with your gut instincts.

when my few dogs passed, I never jumped into getting another dog fast.
I took my time and that perfect dog always came along.

it isn't about the dog now, it is about IF YOU really want another one so fast.

go with the gut...never fails you!!

if you feel you are not ready, don't do it. if your gut says yes, go for it.

ok here it comes.... i will be the nay sayer....

I would be really cautious and heres why

They state in the ad that she was emaciated AND pregnant. when the body is in a starvation mode it will start to feed on its self. and then when the nutrition issue has been corrected it can be havoc on the muscles. including the HEART

I would make sure you have an independent vet look over the dog and do some cardiac testing. rapid weight gain can also cause kidney issues. I would also be concerned with food agression

as for her puppies... if the nutrition was not present for mom then the pups were not nourished during their development... again make sure there is a proper vet check done and a clause stating you can return the pup if there is indeed developmental issues with the pup
