Gavel is a German Shepherd who was fired from being a police dog because he was found to be a bit too sociable for the job. Instead of detecting explosives and arresting the bad guys, he preferred making new friends and would rather have play time with people around him. Despite that, we have nothing to worry about because Gavel already got a better job, a job much suited for his temperament. Turns out there’s a perfect place for this friendly and appealing dog, and that is at the Government House of Queensland, where gavel became Queensland’s official Vice-Regal Dog. He even signed a contract that bestows upon him duties, like welcoming guests and tour groups, and attending ceremonial occasions with perks of wearing special uniforms. Check out how Gavel is having a blast at his new job through the Governor of Queensland’s Facebook page.
