The canines that often found themselves in the custody of the police department had a commanding presence. As a result, they earn respect and have a tendency to frighten the individuals with whom they have to interact. Gavel, on the other hand, seems to be the polar opposite. He’s always nice and upbeat, so he doesn’t seem to fit the bill for this position in the first place.
A sympathetic approach toward the German Shepherd from Queensland, Australia resulted in his expulsion from the police dog training school where he had been enrolled. However, he was fortunate in that he was able to obtain a new position in the same field. At first, they were at a loss as to what to do with Gavel. However, after some deliberation, one of the team members came up with a wonderful suggestion. The dog’s demeanor would make him an ideal match in the realm of politics if he had one.
That’s all there is to it! Today, the naughty Gavel is the Vice-Regal Dog, and he lives at the Government House on a long-term basis.
According to a statement on the Governor of Queensland, Paul de Jersey AC’s Facebook page, “There were many comments from visitors at Open Day on the weekend stating how much they loved following Gavel’s growth from wannabe police pup to Vice-Regal Dog through social media.” “The reality is that we here at Government House have enjoyed telling you about his life story!”
As a result, rather than pursuing down criminals, the overly affectionate dog greets the prominent visitors of the Government House.
According to Jersey, “he has outgrown four ceremonial coats, has transitioned into a new career (his official title is now Gavel VRD, or “Vice-Regal Dog”), and has brought “untold joy” to the lives of the governor, Mrs de Jersey, Government House staff, and “thousands of Queenslanders” who have since visited the estate.
After all, it seems that Gavel’s new position is a wonderful match for him. Despite the fact that he is descended from a long line of royal blood dogs, he is still considered a commoner. As a police dog, he should have made an excellent tracker based on his genetics. Basically, Gavel wanted to be a dog for a while. “We hope Gavel will be with us for a very, very long period of time into the future,” Jersey said in an interview with 7 News Brisbane.
