Not all dogs can bark
"Barking seems to be an acquired trait in dogs, for their wild ancestors — probably wolves — could not bark, and some present-day species of dogs cannot bark. The Australian dog, called the dingo, is found both in the wild and in the domesticated states, and none of them is able to bark."
