Veterinarian who smuggled liquid heroin in packets in the bellies of puppies sentenced to 6 years in prison | NBC News

Andres Lopez Elorez, 39, pled guilty in September 2018 to a single charge of conspiracy to import a controlled substance into the U.S. after he was arrested by US Marshals in Spain in March 2015. Liquid heroin was stored in the dogs' bellies and removed, which caused the death of most of the puppies. However, one Rottweiler named Heroina, survived and became a drug-sniffing police dog in Colombia.
