Police Dog Gets Fired For Being Too Friendly, Later Receives An Even Better Job Offer

Meet Gavel, the German shepherd who was fired from a job as a police dog for… being too friendly for this type of work. Yup, instead of sniffing for explosives and catching thieves for the Queensland Police Service in Brisbane, Eastern Australia, the cute puppy was more interested in getting a belly rub or two.

However, being the good looking service dog that he is, he didn’t have to spend a lot of time standing in line with the unemployed, because he has just landed an even better role for himself. All he has to do is just be his usual, social, and charming self – as he became the official Vice-Regal working dog.

See, Gov. Paul de Jersey met police officer Gavel for the first time when he was just a 10-week-old puppy, as the doggie was supposed to live at the governor’s official residence throughout his training. So, the moment the politician heard the cute dog’s training was canceled because of his friendliness, he stepped in and officially adopted the pooch.

Oh, and Gavel even got to sign the contract that says his duties include welcoming visitors and attending official ceremonies – often dressed in fancy little outfits. Gavel, you did good for yourself, little fellow!

Luckily, he was immediately offered a better job and took a career leap

Gavel became the official dog of Queensland Governor Paul de Jersey who decided to adopt the dog

The doggie even got to sign the contract that says his duties include welcoming visitors…

And attending official ceremonies often dressed in fancy little outfits

Of course, sometimes the canine forgets all about the good manners required by his position

Still, Gavel the friendly doggie did good for himself and seems to be enjoying every bit of it!
