This dog is said to be the mother chihuahua of the pups being sold on kijiji.ca. She was also reported to be urinating blood & showing signs of the deadly parvovirus.
Vets in the Maritimes are very aware of Gail & Dana, most are unwilling to do business with the pair. So chances are thier pups & dogs have NEVER seen a vet or had any vaccinations are extreamly high!
"Prevention is the only way to ensure that a puppy or dog remains healthy since the disease is extremely virulent and contagious. The virus is extremely hardy and has been found to survive in feces and other organic material such as soil for over a year. It survives extremely cold and hot temperatures. The only household disinfectant that kills the virus is bleach.
Weaning puppies can be vaccinated with a modified live virus low passage high titer vaccine at 6 weeks of age, then every 3 to 4 weeks until 15 or 16 weeks. - wikipedia.org
