Oh, my... she looks way younger than 7 weeks to me, and in very poor shape. With that pot belly and ribs, hip bones, and spine showing, she's probably full of parasites. Her rough, dull coat is another indicator of parasites and general neglect.
Personally, I'd switch her to canned food, and warm it up a bit to make it more appealing. Maybe even thin it out a bit with water or puppy formula to make it easier for her to slurp up. She should probably be fed small amounts every couple of hours to avoid hypoglycemia.
Hopefully with getting rid of the parasites and getting some groceries into her, she will make a good recovery.
ETS: Reporting this "breeder" to your local animal welfare authorities would be a good idea. It's possible that mom and the other pups are in just as bad, or even worse, shape.
