Speaking to Sunrise this morning, Lawyer Bill Potts said it is unlikely the model will appear.

“It’s uncertain whether Amber and hear puppies are going to appear in court today, however whats going to happen is at least the matter will be mentioned and we will see if some negotiations have been taking place or whether a plea of guilty will be entered,” Mr Potts said.

The incident gained worldwide publicity when Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce threatened to have the dogs put down.
