Either their resident gal might decide she doesn't like another adult female in the house, or the new pup may develop same sex aggro as she matures. It doesn't matter that they get along right NOW. Even many very dog aggro adult pit bulls will accept puppies.
I understand you did what you thought was right, but please contact this family about this issue. They need to understand that the dogs might not always get along, and they need to accept that and be ready to manage it when the pup gets older.
Now is not the concern. The concern is whether these owners are prepared to make major adjustments in their way of life if, a year or so from now, the dogs decide as mature adults that they don't want to get along. I went through this myself with my girl Riley. As a pup she was wonderful with my other females. It wasn't until months after she had gotten settled into my home and started to mature that problems began to crop up. And it was a major upheaval in the way I managed my dogs. Yes it CAN be done, but ideally the owners should understand what they may be getting into beforehand, so that they're not totally overwhelmed and confused later on.
No one is bashing anyone, and I don't think anyone meant for the OP to feel that way. We all understand wanting to help this dog. But the rescue may be for naught if the owners don't have full knowledge of all the possible consequences of having 2 females in their home. All we're saying is to please make sure they truly understand and accept that responsibility... now, and five years from now.
