Who says you can’t teach an adopted pet new tricks? Certainly not Uggie! Ten years before capturing the hearts of moviegoers around the world, The Artist's Uggie was a shelter pup. Yep! In fact, he was returned by two guardians who were unprepared for the little Jack Russell's boundless energy. But dog trainer Omar Von Muller saw something special in the playful pup. He fell in love with Uggie’s outgoing, mischievous behavior—and it’s been a perfect match ever since.
