Uggie, the Jack Russell who captured hearts in the Oscar-winning 2011 film The Artist, has died aged 13.
He won the Palm Dog award for best canine actor at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival in recognition of his performance, the BBC reported.
In a blog post, the award's organisers wrote: "This was one special little Jack Russell who gave pleasure to millions. What a supreme cutie among cuties."
