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!!

It could be possible, but I don't know too much into it. Does she have any other "quirks" that make you believe that she could be suffering from mental illness? If not, it could be she's just darn slow. Dogs, like people, learn at different rates. And like people, different dogs learn differently. If what you're doing isn't working and it's been that long without the slightest hint of progress, I would say try a different approach. Do you mind describing in what way she's not getting potty training and commands? And how are you trying to teach her potty and commands?
