Dog not showing any signs of improvement!

I recently got a puppy from a random on kijiji .. they told us when we got her that she was a still birth, but they massaged her chest and she started to breath :)

The problem is we have had her for 2 months and she is not catching on to anything.
She is not getting potty training or picking up on any commands.

Is it possible for dogs to suffer from mental illness from oxygen deprivation?

She is a 6 month old Pomeranian papillion mix .. Cutest little girl I've ever seen but dumb!!

My dog BUtters couldn't learn sit for like more than 6 months lol! Now she knows it really well, and even knows how to go to bed!! Sometimes the learning curve is a bit slow, but just keep educating yourself on how to properly train a dog, and make sure your training is very short, and frequent throughout the day. At this age, you really just need to focus on bite inhibition, socialization, learning how to sit, come, and stay. I would just focus on those basic ones before moving into tricks and other obedience commands.
