If I am understanding the intervals correctly she cycles three times in 12 months?

There are some individual females that come in every 4 months although I never had any that did it regularly.

Other than the PITA of having to scratch her from hunt tests; no, not objectionable. I may breed her.
Problem solved, too bad you got the rare short interestrus cycler but if you breed her that might reset things.

Will having a litter change the cycle interval?

I had one that would cycle shortly, never could have a litter. Her estrogen levels were way out of wack, still took a while to figure it all out. Finally went to a Repro vet (board certifided) said that the short cycles didn't allow enough time for the uterine lining to recover to be able to support a pregnancy. If you are planning on breeding, I would talk to a repro vet now and get the estrogen readings done, no sense in keeping having seasons if the dog is unable to reproduce. Dog and yourself might be much happier, getting a spay done; overall
