(Which expressions are correct and commonly used? Thank you for your help.)
the 2nd one does, but u wouldn't have to use because
#1 is not correct English.
The other three are correct and commonly used.
Typically newborn dogs are not called babies, so #2 is the best version. Babies are usually assumed to be human.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
YEAH # 2 IS THE BEST ONE OUT OF 3
