Say hello to Gavel the German Shepherd!
Gavel was recently let go of the police force. Now before you get your pitchforks and torches, hear me out. The cute little puppy was just too sociable and friendly for police work. He’d go around getting belly rubs and scratches from strangers instead of chasing down the bad guys. And while that’s adorable as hell, it made him unsuited to be a police dog.
He was just too cute for the bit
Because being a police dog requires a decorum of aggression and rough-housing, something that Gavel here didn’t have at all, they decided to give him another career.
The events were recounted on the Facebook page of the Governor of Queensland
There were lots of comments from people at Open Day on the weekend expressing how much they enjoyed following via social…
His handlers knew that he wouldn’t make the cut back in February. He was just too cuddly and sociable for it. But since then, he has taken up a far more prestigious job.
He’s become the official Vice-Regal Dog of Queensland
They even had a contract
As it stands, the big puppy is loving his new job.
Being around people is what he does best, and he’s trying his hardest
I say trying, because of his arch-enemy, the paper bag, a formidable foe.
