Le chien ne parle pas anglais

From Reuters:
A blind Quebec student, who was denied entry to English classes at a Canadian university because his guide dog responds only to French commands, will be allowed to attend class, the school said on Wednesday.

Yvan Tessier was turned away from an English immersion course at the University of New Brunswick because he would be forced to give his dog, Pavot, instructions in French.
When asked by reporters Pavot said "I understand English very well. But I only respond to French. Excuse moi, s'il vous plait! Oueff!"
