We are thinking of adopting a 5 month old blue heeler cross

We are thinking of adopting a 5 month old blue heeler cross that we are currently fostering but we have concerns about her rear right leg. The puppy was lame when brought to Animal Humane. Her medical record states "rads of stifles show a tibial tuberosity avulsion with marked proximal displacement and some secondary calcification." This poor little puppy has undergone 3 surgeries---1 to repair the fracture and 2 to remove the pins. (After the last surgery she had a few bloody stools that have since cleared up. A "parvo snap" test was negative. it was also noted that she had some "thrashing" following surgery.) Per the internet-" the prognosis for this fracture is usually good but there may be damage to the growth region at the top of the tibia that might NOT be immediately visible on x-rays yet lead to growth deformities that are more significant and difficult to treat. Also the tibial tuberosity may fuse prematurely following the repair and this could alter the conformation of the knee leading to impaired knee function." Her latest radiographs show "no bony union of tibial tuberosity" and the vet also annotated that she was "using leg very well. Good PROM of stifle." Although she's been cleared to "normal activity" we note that she still favors the injured leg at times. Her last surgery was on Jan 4th. We've had experience with heelers who can sometimes have genetic problems with their back legs anyway. Can we expect that this puppy will likely develop arthritis in her injured leg? Are her back legs more likely to be damaged in the future considering a heeler's high activity level? Should we be concerned that she had a few bloody stools and "thrashing" following one of her surgeries? We just want an independent opinion about her long term prognosis and what we might expect should we adopt her. Thank you.
