Uggie the dog, the 10-year-old Jack Russell terrier who starred in ‘The Artist,’ became the first-ever dog to immortalize his paw prints in concrete outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood yesterday. What? Lassie, Benji or Rin Tin Tin didn’t do it first? Sacrilege!

The event marks Uggie’s official retirement from showbiz. He previously had starring roles in ‘Mr. Fix It’ and ‘Water for Elephants’ before his star-making turn in Michel Hazanavicius’ silent film, which won Best Picture last year.

“The main message that Uggie would like to send to everybody out there is to please adopt,” said Omar Van Muller, the dog’s trainer. “He’s adopted. He made it. If you guys can adopt a dog, even if they don’t make it on the big screen, they’ll be big stars at your house.”
