Mafia orders hit on Pocho the dog - flashback

Pocho the nine-year-old Jack Russell terrier was a key target of the Neapolitan Camorra in 2018, one of the largest, oldest, and most powerful Mafia families in the world. Pocho sniffed out more than two tonnes of drugs during his career with the Naples police. The K9 rose to the top and was one of the greatest threats to the mobsters’ drug trafficking operations.
Pocho deprived them of uncountable millions.
The Camorra left poisoned bait for him and attempted to protect its stashes by placing female dogs in heat nearby. Following the failure of those ploys, the gangsters then offered a €5,000 bounty. There is no indication of Pocho's fate, suggesting he was not whacked. He would be an advanced senior if still alive today.
