Gavel, an adorable German Shepherd puppy in Australia, was not cut out for a life of fighting crime.
After months of training at the police dog academy, he ended up being fired because he preferred belly rubs and cuddling strangers instead of tackling suspects or sniffing out explosives!
He may have not been the right pup for the police academy, but he did end up being just the right dog for the Governor of Queensland.
Gov. Paul de Jersey adopted Gavel and gave him the prestigious job of Vice-Regal Dog.
He appears to be excelling in his new position.
Good boy Gavel!
