Two little Yorkshire terriers that could cause big trouble for Johnny Depp's wife Amber Heard. Australia's ABC reports that she's been charged over illegally bringing the dogs into Australia on a private jet when she and her husband flew there in April. She also faces a charge of producing a false document. Penalties can range from a heavy fine to more than ten years in prison. The dogs were not declared to customs, but government officials followed a tip-off after they were seen on the way to a grooming salon. Depp was in Australia to film the next instalment of his Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The case is set to be heard at a magistrates court on the Gold Coast in September
