Police Dog Is Fired For Truly Adorable Reason, Finds Even Better Job

2418

This is Gavel, a German Shepherd who was recruited as a puppy to train as a police dog – but ended up getting the sack.

Unfortunately, Gavel was found to be not up to the task. As the police put it, he  “did not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line.”

The problem was, Gavel was too sociable. He loved meeting strangers, and would much rather play with someone than help arrest them.

And so, after months of training, his career in law enforcement was over.

However, as one door closes another opens – and Gavel was offered a new job working for the Governor of Queensland, where he holds the official title Vice-Regal Dog.

As this contract reveals, he’s now tasked with welcoming visitors and attending official ceremonies:

Gavel appears to be enjoying every moment of his new role:

However, just like most of us at work, occasionally he has a misstep.
Even though he doesn’t always get it totally right:

“We hope Gavel’s with us for a long, long time into the future,” the Governor told 7 News Brisbane. SHARE AWAY! 🙂
