Default Any runt-related health issues?

Hello, and thanks welcoming me to this forum. I am currently deciding between two 2-year-olds to add to the family (me and my dobe). Both little ladies are around 45-50 pounds, which is a-okay with me. But just want to be thoughtful if there are any long-term health issues associated with these darling runts. Thx in advance for your feedback. I am very happy with both prospects and look forward to giving one a good home, just want to have my eyes wide open.

Both mine were the runts of their respective litters.
Maggie bounces between 46-48 pounds.
Mongo is about 63.
Neither of them have any issues due to being runts.

Pheona was the runt from her litter. We even got her to early, at 4 weeks of age. At her first vet visit (6 weeks) she weighed 2 pounds. She is now around 20 months & weighs in at 48 pounds. Other than issues when we first got her (fleas, worms & ring worm) she is great.

Mine baby is a year and half and weighs 45 lbs. No issues with health at all. She just had a vet checkup and she's doing great!
