Dogs don't understand English

This is a true story. Dogs don't understand English... but it seems that they do understand Dutch. Or at least, this is the case of three police dogs that were recruited to work in England.
Members of the Police Department of an area near Bristol, in the United Kingdom, were seeking for police dogs, but they weren't able to find any animals that satisfied their needs. So they decided to look for the new police members in the Netherlands... and they found there the ideal dogs for the job!! But the animals, two German Shepherds and a Malinoi, didn't react to any instructions given to them in English, so their masters had to learn some Dutch.
Fortunately for that Police Department, the Dutch learned by its policemen is clear enough for the dogs to understand the instructions. So now they can be proud of having some international intelligence working for them. A strange world, isn't it?
