Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would be the first choice. "It's" is a contraction, which would make the sentence "the dog is wagging it is tail". Its is possessive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or do you only use a comma when its an object other than "it"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The dog's tail would be possessive but if it were "it" it would just be its? Idk how this is confusing me so much >.<

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's can also mean "it is". In this case it's "It is a dog wagging its tail." The second "its" is not specific enough to be a possession.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the sentence is talking about someone specific like Thatonegirl_, it would have an apostrophe because it is using the name of a person. "Thatonegirl_'s" while the dog is just a dog so it would not be specific enough.
