Uggie, the canine star of The Artist, has signed on as the new furry face for The Humane Society of the United States.
The Jack Russell Terrier, who retired from moviemaking last year (12), has landed a role as 'spokesdog' for the animal rights organisation's Pets of Valor Awards, which honours rescue dogs and cats for their random acts of heroism.
Uggie, who famously pulled his onscreen owner, actor Jean Dujardin's silent screen character, out of a burning building in the Oscar-winning film, will 'announce' the winner on 2 June (13).
And the furry pooch, who also appeared in Reese Witherspoon's Water for Elephants, is excited about the gig - his trainer, Omar Von Muller, says, "Uggie's honoured to have been chosen by The Humane Society of the United States to be spokesdog for The Pets of Valor Award, although he did hesitate at first when he heard that cats were to be included, but now he likes the idea of having an excuse to bark for them, instead of at them."
