Drug-sniffing German shepherd Sombra is the stuff of nightmares for a ruthless Colombian drug cartel.

Tighter airport security will make it easier for Sombra's handlers to protect her, Newsweek reported. It's in Turbo that Sombra sniffed out the 10 tons of cocaine.

Despite the bounty on her head, Sombra has her fans. The head of the gang Dayro Antonio Usuga is one of the most wanted men in Columbia.

Otoniel, outraged by the enormous losses caused by Somra's sensitive nose, offered 200 million pesos, about $70,000 USA, to anyone who eliminated the highly effective anti-drug campaigner, El Spectador reported.

A Colombian drug gang has out a $70,000 bounty on a police dog. She has helped police in Colombia to seize over 2,000 kilos of cocaine hidden in boats, shipments of fruit and suitcases.

"President Trump's message to Colombia is clear: The record growth in cocaine production must be reversed, " warned Jim Carroll, deputy director for the drug policy office. The dog has already received recognition for her work in the form of two "K-9 Medals of Courage" and is set to receive another later this year. Because she has been so successful, she is the topic of tweets and has even been featured on television.

"Sombra is a very friendly, calm canine, and for that reason, she has no problem approaching children or people who want to say hello to her", Oscar Favian Solarte, head of the anti-narcotics division, told El Tiempo. But the use of police officers and dogs on the ground still plays a big part in the country's war on drugs.

It is also known that the animal is beginning to work with the police service for the fight against drugs as a puppy.

The threat to Sombra's life was discovered via an intercepted phone call.

Targeting Sombra, which means Shadow in English, are the Urabeños, believed by many to be that country's most powerful criminal organisation.
