The text for detect thoughts reads:
I imagine this was intended to cover creatures with an Intelligence of 3 or more that don't speak any languages such as Giant Apes. It's not a stretch to say this probably covers creatures who can understand languages but cannot speak them, such as the Hell Hound but that's DM call IMHO.If the creature you choose has an Intelligence of 3 or lower or doesn’t speak any language, the creature is unaffected.
