Aw poor kid. I think she's just discovering that it feels good to rub there. Doesn't sound like anything she should feel ashamed of. Tell her you love her and give her a hug. Tell her it's normal to do that but next time leave Slash out of it :)

I wouldn't yell at her, I'd ask her where she observed this behavior before. Is she in someone's care? Is that person even slightly someone you might suspect of being an abuser? Is there ever a trusted adult she spends time with alone who you think might have shown her something like this behavior, or whom she may have observed doing this, or do you think this is strictly her own doing? I don't think kids are sexual at this age unless taught, but do your homework, research it and call your doctor to ask advice. You might want to approach it as a matter of respect for the dog, tell her that if she cares for her dog, she won't disrespect him like that and explain that what she is doing isn't nice or fair to him. Try to get a conversation going and don't be judgemental or angry, get her to tell you what's going on by just listening and asking questions in a matter of fact (not horrified) way. That's what I'd do.
