    Your Rottie is a senior. She could have a heart problem, cancer that has metastasized to her lungs, or just  mild infection with some older dog changes to her lungs. No one can tell you on the internet. The only thing you can do is take her to your regular vet and have her lungs listened to with a stethoscope. She may need x-rays, depending on what the vet hears.
    Get her in to your vet as soon as possible.

    My dog started doing this when her heart enlarged.  She lived another 4-5 years on medication after diagnosis.  Take your dog to the vet so you can treat the problem early if there is one.
