Could be a pyoderma - a skin infection. Molly (my Golden retriever) had spots like that on her, I was beginning to wonder if she had chicken pox , turns out it's just a manifestation of a skin infection.... commonly caused by allergy - fleas are common but could be just about anything. Is she itchy?

Maybe a bath might help
