Is adopting a dog sight-unseen foolish?

My partner and I are feel we are ready for another dog after the loss of our dog last year. We have been looking for a long time on PetFinder and have found what was billed as a fairly local dog (RI, we are in Boston). After inquiring we have learned the dog is in Texas and would be transported to us after we commit to take it. Of course the problem is we have fallen for this dog based on her photos and description. We started out sure that we would not get a dog we couldn't meet first but now we are so tempted. The reviews on-line about this organization seem pretty positive, the complaints generally being about the pickiness of their application procedure.
My partner works from home and this pet will be a very full time relationship. Is this nuts to even consider?
