|You've received some great advice, but I just wanted to add: BE PATIENT.
We adopted Zelda about a year and a half ago, and she was scrawny as could be. Underweight, boney, and no muscle. We started her on a raw food diet and within several months, muscle started forming but she still seemed underweight to me. To be perfectly honest, she did not reach an ideal weight until a few months ago.
Some dogs, for one reason or another, are just skinny. That doesn't mean they're unhealthy, but they might always just have the last couple ribs poking out. Just remember that it's much better for a dog to be slightly underweight than slightly overweight.
