'Polish' dog finds a new home

Cent the dog

An unwanted dog who only answered to Polish commands has found a home.

Sixteen-year-old Dominic and his mum Jolanta spotted Cent when they heard about his story in the news - and decided to adopt him.

The RSPCA centre that looked after Cent at first assumed he was deaf because he refused all commands.

But they soon discovered that he wasn't deaf - he only understood Polish. They've taught Cent English and now he's fluent in both languages.

And luckily for Cent he'll be able to practice both - his new family speak Polish and English too!
