The Artist’s main star, Jean Durjardin…hu-um…sorry I mean Uggie the dog, has had such a huge impact on movie-goers that it’s raised the demand for people adopting Jack Russel Terriers from local shelters. In particular, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has seen a massive rise in demand for this specific breed alone. On the night of the BAFTAs, about 630 people visited their website looking for Jack Russel Terriers, and with the Oscars coming up this Sunday the numbers are expected to surge again.

Battersea’s rehoming co-ordinator Carly Perry said: “Jack russells are always a popular breed here at Battersea, but this current increase in demand is giving them the opportunity to really enjoy their fame.

“Although we’re pleased about this, we want to make sure people who do rehome their own Uggie are aware of the level of commitment required to own a pet, so their new four-legged friend can enjoy being the main attraction in a new home.” – The Guardian

Just remember folks…a dog is a pet for life and not just for Oscar season…speaking of which maybe I could open a side business in miniature dog bow ties…mmm..



  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Great work!
