RSPCA staff believed that Cent, a border collie, was untrainable because he would not follow commands – until they discovered he was trained in Polish. he homeless hound has now been found a home with a bilingual Polish family in Essex.Dominik Mroz, 16, said: “As my family speak both Polish and English there was a real connection to Cent. “In the few days we’ve been with Cent, he has already made our jaws drop out of amazement for his intelligence and affection.
“We speak to Cent in English and Polish and have discovered some commands that he reacts to strongly in Polish so we’ll continue with these.”
Mandy Tierney, branch manager of RSPCA Oldham, added: “It was lovely to see Cent with his new family.”All the staff at the shelter felt like proud parents waving off our child when he left.”We couldn’t have asked for a better family to adopt him and it’s brilliant that he is going to stay bilingual.”
