The canines that frequently end up in the police force have a commanding presence. As a result, they garner respect and have a tendency to frighten the individuals with whom officers have to deal. Gavel, on the other hand, appears to be the polar opposite. He’s always nice and cheerful, thus he’s not the right match for this position.
Because of his amiable demeanor, the German Shepherd from Queensland, Australia was pulled out of his police canine training program. Fortunately, he was able to find a new employment in the same field. They had no notion what to do with Gavel at first. However, after some consideration, a member of the crew came up with a wonderful suggestion. With his demeanor, the dog would be well at home in the political arena.
Done and dusted! Gavel is currently the Vice-Regal Dog, with a permanent residence at the Government House.
“People at Open Day on the weekend said how much they loved following Gavel’s growth from wannabe police hound to Vice-Regal Dog via social media,” according to a post on the Governor of Queensland Paul de Jersey AC’s Facebook page. “The truth is, we at Government House have enjoyed telling you about his life!”
Rather than hunting evil criminals, the overly affable dog greets the prestigious visitors of the Government House.
“He’s outgrown four ceremonial jackets, changed careers (his official title is now Gavel VRD, ‘Vice-Regal Dog’), and provided enormous delight to the governor, Mrs de Jersey, Government House employees, and the hundreds of Queenslanders who have visited the estate since then,” Jersey told the BBC.
After all, Gavel appears to be a fantastic match for the new role. Despite the fact that he comes from a long line of pedigree, he is a royal blood dog. As a police dog, he should have been a fantastic tracker genetically. Gavel essentially wanted to be a dog. Jersey told 7 News Brisbane, “We hope Gavel remains with us for a long, long time into the future.”
