Friendly pup fails to become part of police force but finds an adorable new job

Gavel, a German Shepherd pup from Queensland, Australia, just wasn’t cut out to be a police dog. The fun-loving, friendly dog “did not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line.” But that’s okay. Because there’s definitely a place in the world for playful pups! 🙂

Gavel looks like he’s fitting in quite nicely at his new job.
