That's how dogs sweat. If there's someplace she could lay in front of a fan she'd probably find it more comfortable.

At this time of year my dog is always in the bathroom floor since it is tiled. Cools the body down faster as opposed to carpet. Try to putting him/her in that sort of environment and the fan is a good idea.

Dogs can get heat stroke just like people so be very careful. You might try giving her a nice little soak with a garden hose to cool down.
