Which sentence is correct?

Is correct. The comma is unnecessary. It is also correct. The comma would stress strong emotion. Right, but not needed

phrase A sounds wrong. I'd say something like "The girl went outside to look for her dog"
Phrase B indicates that she was looking for her dog, but went outside because she couldn't find the do insideSource(s): dutch/NL

It's probably not necessary.
Commas can change the meaning of a sentence, but, in this case, it's read more like a pause.
