Most rescues foster their dogs in the homes of volunteers. All good rescues evaluate their dogs so they can paint a complete picture for the adopter. My guess is that the girl IS housetrained. Even so, expect she "may" have a few accidents in your home due to stress and the new environment. Limit her access in your home and use a crate until she earns her freedom.
Take anything the previous owner said with a grain of salt. The dog is most certainly not dumb. The owner? Well that is another story. It is more likely the owner did little to nothing with the dog than that the dog was mistreated.
Give her a chance. I'm betting she is a great little dog. Please keep us posted.
