Police Dog Fired For Being Too Friendly

Not everyone is cut out for a life of fighting crime.

Take Gavel, a German shepherd who flunked out of a police dog academy in Australia because he “did not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line,” according to the BBC.

Apparently Gavel was too friendly, and preferred cuddles to tackles.

But the pup had made a good friend, who helped him land on his feet: the governor of Queensland.


WBAL reports that Gavel’s new duties consist of welcoming visitors and tour groups to the grounds of Queensland’s Government House.
