|Mmk... I'm going to go against what others are saying.
I do think the possibility of it having been a seizure are there. A partial, or a petite. Clearly not a grand mal - but there are VARIOUS forms of seizures. A friend had a foster dog who had aggressive tendencies and snapped at invisible flies all day and it turned out she was having Focal Seizures. A dog DOES NOT have to be dropping to the floor, convulsing. In fact, many dogs remain on their feet and struggle to keep walking, or try to escape the 'feeling' they get.
Now, keep in mind that MANY things can trigger seizure activity too - if a dog gets into something poisonous, a tumor, a hit on the head, illness/diseases, genetics, you name it and it can often cause seizure activity.
Many Vets would do some tests to verify whether or not it was a seizure, so a vet check may be in order. However, if it was seizure activity, it is likely they will send you home to monitor it and see if she has more.
IF she has more of this behavior prior to you taking her in, try video taping it on a camera or a phone or something so you can give the Vet a proper look at what's going on - also record how long it lasts, what time it happened, any possible triggers(what happened that day), and the date. Keeping a journal of this will ultimately help the Vet in figuring out what is causing it.
