The official Uggie app is here! To celebrate the phenomenal global success of the multiple-award winning black and white movie The Artist, we’re bringing you the chance to have your very own Uggie app for the first time.
The little dog with the big heart captivated movie goers around the world in the silent film that took everyone by surprise. The Artist won three Golden Globes, seven Baftas, six Cesars and five Oscars, but it was the scene-stealing canine sidekick of Best Actor Jean Dujardin that really set tongues - and tails - wagging.
This remarkable ten-year-old Jack Russell who was once destined for the pound, not only received the coveted Palm Dog in Cannes but was the first to be honoured by having his pawprints set in concrete on Hollywood Boulevard. He was also awarded the prestigious Golden Collar and his very own Pawscar for his amazing acting abilities.
The world’s most famous hound has already barked his memoir to a celebrity biographer, published internationally in October 2012, but now dog lovers everywhere as well as fans of The Artist can have their very own all-action Uggie app.
