Uggie, the Jack Russell Terrier who shared screen time with Jean Dujardin in “The Artist” and Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattison in “Water for Elephants,” passed away last Friday in Los Angeles, he was 13.

According to TMZ, Uggie’s owner, Omar Von Mueller, had to make the difficult decision to put his dog down. The poor canine had been suffering after being diagnosed with prostate cancer, and his pain became stronger in the past couple of weeks.

Uggie’s trainer, Sarah Clifford, told TMZ he was “a perfect little terrier” with boundless energy. “I will forever hold him dearly in my heart and never forget his infinite love for chicken and hotdogs.” She added.

The famous terrier’s participation in “The Artist” earned him a Palm Dog Award for Best Canine Actor at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, and was the first dog to leave his paw prints on cement outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Uggie’s work includes the films “What’s Up Scarlett,” “Wassup Rockers,” “Mr. Fix It,” and “The Campaign.” He published an autobiography, ghost-written by Wendy Holden, and he became Nintendo’s first ever spokesdog.
