“Gavel” the German Shepherd was happier licking strangers than restraining them.

The governor of Queensland gave him a special job as “Vice-Regal Dog.”

Gavel now spends his time welcoming guests to the Queensland’s Government House.

Gavel recently greeted 24 new citizens from 13 countries at their swearing-in ceremony.

He even has his very own official ceremonial coat, adorned with the flag, crown and emblem of Queensland.
