Hello,

There is no disease or condition that is specific to this concern. Could she be cold? dreaming? or could it be related to a seizure? It might help to capture it on a video and show it to your vet. They might be able to provide better direction.

If she is sleeping soundly, and has no other ailments or abnormal behaviors it might just be that she is dreaming. Your vet could help diagnose this if you could show them a video of her doing it.

I have a staffy bull who shakes as well. He is 12 years old now, but has done it since I rescued him at 5. He is perfectly fine. They actually can have a genetic disorder, L-2-HGA which effects the central nervous system. Most breeders screen for it, but as a staffy owner you might want to look into it.
