When asked whether Pistol and Boo, Amber Heard’s dogs will visit Australia again, Johnny Depp’s wife claimed to have a feeling they would “avoid the Land Down Under from now on.” Since the two Yorkshire terriers go wherever the couple goes, it is assumed the Depps won’t be back in Oz any time soon.

While promoting her new movie "Magic Mike XXL," Heard was asked about Pistol and Boo in an interview with Australia’s Channel Seven "Sunrise." In the interview, the 29 year-old said that the avoidance of the country stemmed from “certain politicians.” She laughed before adding how everyone tries to get 15 minutes of fame, and in this case, including “some government officials.”

"Sunrise" presenters Samantha Armytage and David Koch were disappointed of Heard's decision, but both thought she should be more respectful of the country's quarantine laws. "They think they're a bit above the law," Koch mused.

News of the couple sneaking in their dogs to the country without going through proper channels or obtaining proper certifications and permits became public May of this year. The dogs flew in the country together with the pair on a private jet for the actor’s filming of the latest "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie franchise.

In an interview, Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said authorities became aware of the dog’s unofficial presence when they were seen at a dog groomer. The minister gave the Depps the option to take the dogs back to California within 50 hours or they will be euthanised. The minister stood by his statements saying “it’s time that Pistol and Boo [expletive] off back to United States.” The duo later decided to fly their pets back to conform to the order.

Australia has one of the world’s strictest quarantine laws. Live animals undergo strict examination and observation before being allowed entry into the country to make sure they do not bring any diseases with them. Upon arriving in the airport, owners or caretakers of live animals must acquire necessary permits and submit them for isolation. Owners and caretakers can have them back after they have cleared quarantine.
