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.
