Melissa, I understand your desire to purchase a confidence builder, but if you are planning to sell her to move up or not be prepared or willing to retire her later, especially with her already having age related issues... Please pass her up.
She probably deserves a forever home and IMHO should go to a home that is ready and 100% positive they would have her to the end. It might also be impossible to resale her if she develops further ailments. If I knew your plans I wouldn't sell her to you. Go look for one younger with the same temperament. Good luck!!
