Depp, Heard Arrive For Dogs Court Hearing In Queensland

Johnny Depp and his wife Amber Heard have arrived at the Southport Magistrates Court, where the actress is scheduled to face trial for illegally smuggling their two dogs into Australia on a private jet.

A large media contingent swarmed on the couple as they arrived at the court house at 8.50am.

Depp's only comment was "Fine, thank you," when questioned by reporters.

Heard, 29, is accused of sneaking Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo into the country last May while Depp was on the Gold Coast filming the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

The incident sparked global headlines when Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said the dogs had better "bugger off" back to the US or he'd arrange to have them put down.

It's alleged the pooches were not declared to customs officials on arrival.

The presence of the A-list canines was only discovered when their visit to a Gold Coast dog grooming salon was made public.

Heard is facing a four-day trial for allegedly breaching Australia's quarantine laws.

Depp is expected to be one of 12 witness called by Commonwealth prosecutors to give evidence.
