A dog caused confusion in an animal home when he failed to respond to basic commands - until staff realized he could only understand Polish.
The staff at a facility in England originally thought Cent the collie was deaf.
But when they looked into his history they realized he came from a Polish family and so did not "speak" English.
So staff brushed up on Polish commands and, four months on, they say Cent is now bilingual and ready for a new home.
Below are a few translations should you ever need them:
- Sit - siad
- Come here - do mnie
- Heel - noga
- Stay - zostan
- Fetch - aport
