German Shepherd Kicked Out of Police School

Gavel the German Shepherd was kicked out of the Queensland Police  Service in Australia because he was too friendly--or, as the cops put  it, he "did not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front  line." According to the BBC, the pup loved meeting strangers and  preferred playing with people rather than helping arrest them.  Fortunately, he's since found a job that puts his social skills to use:  Gavel works for the Governor of Queensland as "Vice-Regal Dog." His  duties include greeting visitors to Queensland's Government House and  attending official functions alongside Governor Paul de Jersey. He is  also featured prominently on the social media accounts for the  Government House and has a dedicated fanbase.
