Amber Heard’s 2015 Dog Smuggling Incident
Back in 2015, Amber Heard, who was then married to Johnny Depp at that time, went to Australia to meet her then-husband as he was filming the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The actress brought the couple’s two Yorkshire Terriers, Pistol and Boo on a private jet.
According to the reports, she has smuggled the dogs without a permit and did not follow the protocol of serving the required two weeks in quarantine for the dogs as animals entering Australia from the United States are mandatory to be quarantined for 10 days as that protocol aims to prevent the introduction of diseases into the island state.
Though she was charged with two counts of illegally immigrating the dogs, the case was closed, when she pled guilty to falsifying travel documents in a Gold Coast court in 2016. While the ex-couple paid huge fines with their dogs returned to them, and the matter seemed to be closed.

If the Aquaman actress is found guilty, she will have to face 14 years of imprisonment in Australia. While Heard would have to pay $10.35 million to Depp for damaging his reputation, she was also in news earlier for reportedly writing a ‘tell-all’ book after she got broke.
