A police dog was sacked from his job because of this – Details
A police dog was sacked from it’s job because it is too friendly to be in the force. Gavel reportedly loves rolling over and having his belly rubbed rather than standing to attention and looking fierce.
The police dog-in-training failed to make the final cut for Queensland Police Service in Australia because of his overly-sociable temperament. But luckily, he was offered a new role welcoming visitors to Brisbane’s Government House as Governor Paul de Jersey’s official Vice-Regal Dog.
According to Daily Mirror, spokesman for Queensland Government House said: “Gavel arrived at Government House in April last year as a six-week-old puppy. “It was intended that he would undergo a training and socialization programme preparing to become a Queensland Police Service Dog.
But like many aspiring QPS Dogs, Gavel did not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line. Not all dogs display this, and Gavel proved himself to be quite sociable.
He is better suited to life as a ceremonial dog and will instead now spend his working days at Fernberg, where he has become a much-loved part of Government House life.” .
