Uggie’s Collar To Raise Funds for Rescue

On Oscar night all of Hollywood’s brightest stars put on the dog– including Tinseltown’s top Spot Uggie, who wore a Chopard bow tie collar when he appeared on to the stage with his co-stars to accept the award for Best Picture.

Custom-designed for The Artist‘s canine cast member, the collar consisted of a black satin bow tie accented with an 18-karat yellow gold charm which bore his name.

Touched by the tale of the Jack Russell Terrier who was pound bound before trainer Omar von Muller stepped into the role of his doggie Dad, Chopard co-president Caroline Scheufele created the collar for a paws cause. The stylish item will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting The Amanda Foundation, a Beverly Hills-based non-profit which has rescued countless orphan Fidos and felines from kill shelters from more than three decades.
