Default Advice or ideas would be great

OK as some of my might now im going to "foster" a extremly skinny female Pitbull my sister found today until i can find her a good safe home. Now i know that both Zeus and Tundra are rescues but they wern't extremly skinny so i did'nt have a problem with feeding them and introducing them into the raw diet they now live by.

Im just wondering since she is so skinny I figured also since she probley hasent had a raw diet before i would start putting weight back on her with Innova. Now im wondering should i just feed her strictly Innova and don't even think of feeding her and getting her used to raw? Or should I add the raw to boost her weight and muscle gain? And also is there something better out there then Innova to feed a skinny dog? I know this sounds very rookie of me but I really am when it comes to fostering a skinny skinny dog. Im just wondering because I don't want to get her too used to eating raw if she goes into a home where they can't afford to feed her what she would have normaly eaten at my home. Im assuming just feeding her Innova would be a good idea and maybe add a few bits of veggies and meat to her evening meal or something. I don't know.

I would feed the kibble. Her new owner will probably want to feed her dry and/or wet, not raw.

I think you've got the right idea with the Innova. Something we do with our pups, and even in the winter when they are grown is give them calf milk replacer. All the milk fat has been extracted, so all they are getting is the nutritive parts - especially good for bones and muscles. It's inexpensive, too.
