One of the animals rescued, a Rottweiler named Heroina, grew up to become a drug-sniffing police dog in Colombia.

A drug-running veterinarian, who used live puppies to smuggle heroin into the United States from Colombia, was sentenced to six years in prison Thursday.

Andres Lopez Elorez, 39, pled guilty in September 2018 to a single charge of conspiracy to import a controlled substance into the U.S.
I think it's great that they named one of the dogs 'Heroina.'
