    I think it might be /summon dog ~ ~ ~ name Rex   Let me check

    I've only really ever done this with npcs

    Ok /summon dog doesn't work

    I was able to do this

    /summon wolf ~~~ minecraft:on_tame Rex

    But the whole dog was Red?  which seemed odd.

    the syntax /summon <entitytype:Entity Type> <nameTag:string> [spawnpos:x y z]

    or              /summon <entitytype:Entity Type> [spawnpos:x y z] [spawnEvent:string] [nameTag:string]

    This is what I usually use to get an NPC that I can then move around with commands using the top syntax.

    /summon npc Instructor ~~~

    You can get a wolf (not a dog) with a name by doing this

    /summon minecraft:wolf Rex ~~~

    I'm not sure how to summon a Tamed wolf (dog) since the game doesn't know who tamed it so that might be why the first one I did was red?
