Hello! My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with your dog today.
Have you ever owned a female dog before?
I assume she's not spayed?

Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
It sounds to me like your dog is in heat.
As you may not know, dogs can be in heat for up to 23 days, and it's not uncommon to see some bleeding the whole time.
You can read more about it here: http://rrcus.org/rhodesianridgebackhealth/Documents-PDFs/19-30_dobs_0797.pdf
The best thing to do to avoid this is to get her spayed. There are low cost spay/neuter clinics across the country that can help with the cost, and then you won't have to deal with this anymore.
I hope this helps.
