Dear student , 

Dog refers to a common noun as it refers to a whole group , whereas "My Tommy Dog" is a proper noun . 

Coming to the question that even though dog is a specific animal , then why isn't it a proper noun . 

Its the same situation as if we are telling that "box" refers to a specific thing , but the company of the box is not mentioned . Therefore , the box is a common noun . 

 

Hope it helped . 

Regards .

Dog is a common noun. It can be any dog. Even if the breed had been mentioned, we would still not know the dog properly. Example German shepherd could be any of the lakhs of German shepherds in the world. If the name or the owner of the dog is mentioned example Tommy or Mike's dog, then it could have been be considered as a proper noun.
Thank you!
