Uggie, the Dog Star of the Oscar-winning film "The Artist", dies aged 13

Postby 194-Admin WA » Thu Aug 27, 2015 12:49 pm

Uggie, the talented and bright Jack Russell terrier who had a starring role in the 2012 five Oscar-winning silent movie The Artist, died of prostate cancer in Los Angeles, aged 13.

Uggie’s owner and trainer Omar Von Muller announced Ugge's passing in a Facebook posting: “We regret to inform to all our friends, family and Uggie’s fans that our beloved boy has passed away.”

He added: “Uggie had a cancerous tumour in the prostate and is now in a better place not feeling pain. Thank you for your support, I will not be reading any comments for a while as it is too painful at the moment."

In 2012 Uggie became the first dog to have his (paw) prints cemented outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

In 2011 Uggie was also honoured with a Palm Dog award at the Cannes Film Festival.
