Dog Uggie honoured in Los Angeles

26 June 2012

The Artist star Uggie cemented his position as Hollywood's top dog as he was honoured with a pawprint ceremony outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

The ten-year-old Jack Russell sported a bow-tie as he marked his retirement from the film industry by becoming the first dog to place his paws outside the Los Angeles landmark.

Uggie's owner and trainer, Omar von Muller thanked the dog's thousands of Facebook and twitter fans.

"Everyone says that I'm a great trainer, I don't think so, I think he's just a great dog," he said.

He added: "Pretty much the main message that Uggie would like to send to everyone out there is to please go out and adopt.

"He's adopted. If he made it, you guys can adopt a dog, and even if he doesn't make it on the big screen he'll be the star in your house."

Uggie, who appeared as Jean Dujardin's pet in the Oscar-winning silent film, has previously starred alongside Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon in Water For Elephants.

He won the Palm Dog Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, and was awarded with a Golden Collar Award earlier this year.
