Select the answer choice that shows that the dog belongs to Melissa using a possessive noun. 

Possible Answers:

Spot is Melissa's dog.

Spot's dog is Melissa. 

Spot is Melissa dog. 

Correct answer:

Spot is Melissa's dog. 

Explanation:

A possessive noun shows who or what owns somethings.

"Spot is Melissa's dog." is the correct answer.
