Dog not deaf, he only understand Polish

By jim Published: January 18, 2010

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.

  • Sit - siad

  • Come here - do mnie

  • Heel - noga

  • Stay - zostan

  • Fetch - aport
