AMY: "Alex, I really wish you would keep your dog out of my garden shed. It's got fleas!"
ALEX: (to his dog) "Rex, you hear that? Keep out of Amy's garden shed. It's got fleas!"

This short conversation relies for its humour on

a deliberate refusal on Alex's part to comply with Amy's wishes.
a word with a double meaning.
a word with an ambiguous referrent.
a failure on Alex's part to understand what Amy wants him to do.

Agree with concensus.
"It's got fleas!" Amy wants it to refer to Rex but Alex takes it to be the shed which has fleas
