At this age I would have your vet check her out as this could be due to a health problem such as Diabetes or Cushings disease (an adrenal gland problem).
Adult dogs can also get internal parasites just like pups so if she has not been checked for those that would be a good idea too.
Cushings is seen in this breed and you can read about this problem here in case that is what it is

Hope this helps you!
