Dog Who Was Too Nice For Police School Was Given A New Job Instead

Of all the jobs that a dog could have, the most honorable is definitely that of a police dog. One hopeful German Shepherd puppy was determined to follow in the footsteps of his family and become a member of the Queensland Dog Squad in 2016. Everyone had high hopes for this pup but in less than a year, he was dropped from the academy. Some were disappointed at first but it turned out that this pup was destined for something greater.

In April 2016, the Queensland Police in Australia were excited to announce the arrival of one of their newest hopeful recruits. He was a six-week-old German Shepherd puppy named Gavel.

The adorable little guy was about to embark on 16 months of police dog training to assist in tracking and catching criminals as a member of the Queensland Dog Squad. Unfortunately, Gavel never graduated from his training and faced an uncertain future. What could possibly have gone wrong?
