If you didn't get her from a reputable breeder (you don't mention her breed) or if she came from a shelter, she very well could have fleas. The fleas don't know it's cold outside! You may be able to see them if you turn her on her back and have a look at her tummy, but fleas can easily hide. You might want to invest in a flea comb (which has very tight, close together teeth). If you comb her with a flea comb, then tap the comb on white paper, and you see black bits, you have fleas. That black stuff is flea dirt (AKA poop!). Have you had her to the vet? I assume you have, since you must be a responsible owner, right? You may want to mention her biting at herself. He will suggest proper treatments, appropriate to her age. DON'T just give her a flea bath with OTC flea treatments. Some of those are very strong, and can injure tender young skin, not to mention poison a pup too young for the drug used.
