How it works / Getting a specific type of dog:
A newly tamed wolf turns into a random dog. There's a small chance it will remain a wolf when tamed. You can get a specific type of dog AND give said dog a custom name using name tags. To achieve this, the name tag must include one of the words on the Supported name tags list below.

Some examples of possible name tags:
- Baloo (pug)
- (shepherd) Wilbur
- Daisy beagle
- dalmatian Spot

*: These dogs have cropped ears. It's unnatural and controversial in real life but I decided to keep it as an option trough name tags because it adds more customization and because this is just a resource pack. You can't get these models trough breeding.
